This delightful dwarf marigold mix is a cheery blend of golden orange, bright yellow, and red. The compact plants are dense and short, so they offer a lot of blooms but don't take up much space in the garden. It is effortless to grow this classic flower, so it makes an excellent choice for a beginning gardener.
Direct sow in spring, planting just below the surface of the soil. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination. This plant can also be started 4-6 weeks before the last frost of spring. The seeds germinate best in high humidity and temperatures around 70° and germination usually occurs in 10 days. Water seedlings occasionally until they become established. Once matured, they will be relatively drought tolerant, but water them during extended dry periods. Pinch back the growing stems to encouragebushiness.
