French Marigold

250 Seeds

$ 2.79

(Tagetes patula) Easy-to-grow annual makes an excellent first gardening adventure for children.  In fact, my first seed saving experience was helping my grandmother collect the seeds off her heirloom marigolds when I was barely more than a toddler.  Short, 6-8" plants bloom profusely in vibrant shades of orange and red.  Lace-like foliage has a distinct scent that is rumored to repel rabbits and roots have been demonstrated to repel nematodes.  Approx. 250 seeds per packet.

CULTURE:  After danger of frost has passed, sow seeds 1" apart, 1/4" deep in a prepared garden bed.  After germination has occurred, thin to one plant every 8-10 inches.  Keep watered, but do not fertilize as this will encourage foliage growth at the expense of blooms.
