Marigold F Care
Sow them directly into the garden once the soil is warm, or start seeds indoors about a month to 6 weeks before the last spring-frost date
Marigolds need lots of sunshine (at least six hours of direct sunlight) and do well with year round warm to hot weather
Water marigolds the first 10 to 12 days after transplanting bedding plants into the garden.
Though they grow in almost any soil, marigolds thrive in moderately fertile, well-drained soil.
Avoid fertilizing the plants. Marigolds thrive in poor soil and fertilizer often creates lush, rich foliage with few blooms.
