These bright marigolds call in pollinators big and small. Flowers with a single row of petals make pollen access easy. Compact plants are tidy and full; beautiful at the front of a bed or tucked between vegetables. Plants grow and flower quickly with continuous blooms from spring until frost. French marigolds are edible, but with a very strong flavor similar to its pungent scent. Fairly drought tolerant once established.

I sowed these Marigold seeds indoors on February 18th. The germination rate was high and the earliest seedling emerged three days later. The seedlings were hardy and were quite satisfying in how quickly they grew. Flower buds began emerging in early April and about half have bloomed as of mid April and the blooms look like what is pictured on the front of the seed packet. I look forward to seeing how long the marigolds will continue to flower and how well they will serve as companion plants to my vegetables.

Easy to start from seed and fast growing. So pretty and cheerful. And they bring pollenators and good bugs to your veggie garden.

They've taken everything out hot, dry, then hot, wet summer could throw at them. Self-deadheading. Covered with mildly flavored blooms. Will grow again!

For shorter marigolds this mix provides a combination of yellows, reds, and mixed red/yellow. Lovely little nuggets of color that don't stop blossoming all season.

These were the biggest, most prolific marigolds I've ever grown in my garden beds. They easily got to be between 18-24 inches tall even in partly shady locations and are still flowering abundantly as we approach November. They also did well in the hot summer heat. I've been so happy with them that I can't wait to grow more next year!

I planted many different multicolored marigold seeds last spring--in stores, from big name online sellers. By far, these were the best. Really distinctive color patterns.

These marigolds are beautiful and strong. They are still blooming on the first of January. They attracted butterflies all fall season. I have beautiful photos of them.
