Petite Yellow Marigold Seeds 5655 Dwarf, fully double, pure yellow flowers only 2.5 cm (1″) across literally cover these bushy 15 cm (6″) high plants.
How to Grow
300 seed/gram. These incredibly easy to grow annuals can be directly seeded in the garden in mid to late May. Sow 6 mm (1/4″) deep, watering as necessary until germination occurs in roughly 7 days. Thin or transplant the seedlings when they are 5-8 cm (2-3″) tall. For earlier blooms start seed indoors in a soil-less mix 6 weeks before planting out time. American & African types produce big, double blooms up to 15 cm (6″) across on tall, sturdy stemmed plants. French types are refined, compact plants with numerous, smaller blossoms. Marigolds are superb for edging, mass plantings and window boxes. The unusual scent of marigolds seem to repel insects and are often planted in vegetable gardens for this reason.
