Product Description

Tagetes patula

This is one of the hardest flowers to get a picture that will do it justice!  These French double dwarf marigolds are among one of my favorite annuals to grow.  They are simply gorgeous in various shades of yellow, orange, and red.  They get very bushy, even without pinching, and they fill in so many areas of the garden.  I will always grow this variety in my garden.  These seeds were collected from the plants in my garden.  Plants get 12-15″ tall.  Space 12″ apart in the garden.

Minimum of 50 seeds


Start seeds 4-6 weeks before your last average frost.  Sow 1/8″ deep.  Kept at 70-75° F, germination is in 7-14 days.


Space French marigolds 8-12″ apart in the garden and African marigolds 12-18″ apart.  When plants are 5-8″ tall, pinch them back (cut off the top 3″) right above a set of leaves to encourage branching.  High temperatures can cause some marigolds to stop blooming.  Make sure to keep plants watered in hot weather when they are not flowering well.  Deadhead spent flowers to encourage more blooms.
