These flowers are the spendthrifts among annuals, bringing a wealth of gold, copper, and brass into our summer and autumn gardens. The flower's popularity probably derives in part from its ability to bloom brightly all summer long.
Instruction how to grow Marigolds:
Marigolds thrive in full sunshine and can often withstand very hot summers.
Though they grow in almost any soil, marigolds do best in moderately fertile, well-drained soil. Prepare the soil by digging down about 6 inches to loosen it. Remove stones.
Sow seeds directly into the garden once the soil is warm in the spring. You can start seeds indoors but they germinate so easily outside that there's really no advantage. Marigolds sprout within days in warm weather and plants bloom in about 8 weeks.
Moisten the soil, then sow seeds 1 inch apart and no more than 1 inch deep.
Germination from large, easily handled seeds is rapid, and blooms should appear within a few weeks of sowing.
Once the marigolds have established themselves, pinch off the tops of the plants to encourage them to grow bushier. This will keep the plants from becoming leggy and will encourage more blooming.
Marigolds don't require deadheading, but if dying blossoms are regularly removed, it will encourage the plant to continue blooming profusely.
Do not water marigolds from overhead. Water at the base of the plant. (Excess water on leaves can lead to powdery mildew.)
Do not fertilize marigolds during growth. Too rich a diet stimulates lush foliage at the expense of flowers.
Add a layer of mulch between plants to suppress weeds and keep soil moist, especially when plants are young.
