Enjoy sunny blooms all summer long by starting marigold seeds in the early spring. This seed mix produces compact plants with flowers in shades of red, orange and yellow. Across the world, marigolds are used as a sign of connection and love. During the joyful Day of the Dead holiday in Mexico and Latin America, marigolds are an important part of celebrating the lives of deceased loved ones.
For growing inside; Place a few seeds on potting soil and
cover with a 1/4 inch of soil. Keep soil moist and at room temperature. Place in a south facing window in full sun and grow lights if possible. If the temperature is above 65F, place pot outside on spring and summer days when possible. Sowing outside; Sow marigold seed directly in the ground and cover with a thin layer of soil (about 1/4 inch deep). Water thoroughly. Thin to 8-12 inches apart after seedlings have sprouted.
Seed saving; After flowers bloom and dry, detach the dried petals from the plant. Under the petals are the skinny seeds!
