Growing Instructions.

Marigolds need full sun light and can withstand hot summers. They grow in all types of well drained medium fertile soil.

Before sowing the seeds dig the soil to about 6 inches deep and loosen the soil.

Direct sowing can be done with a spacing of 1 feet between plants.

If grown in pots upto 3 plants can be grown with enough spacing between them.

Sow the seeds half inch deep and water well.

Seeds starts to germinate from 4th day onwards.

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.

Remove the dead flowers often.

While watering the plants water them directly in the base of the soil and not over the plants.
