How to Grow & Harvest Marigolds

 

When to Plant

Start your seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost for your area.  You can also direct-sow marigold seeds outside once the soil is warm and the threat of frost has passed.

 

How to Plant

Choose a location with full sun and average soil.  Wash spider mites off with an organic soap spray if you find them.  Remove any dead flowers regularly to encourage more blooms.  

 

When to Harvest

Marigolds make long lasting cut flowers, which are excellent for informal flower arrangements.  Use them freely in beds, borders, edges, and pots.
