Owner Response: Hi Nancy,
It sounds like growing conditions could be more ideal. This isn't something that would happen naturally. You can find more about growing marigolds in the "Learn More" tab here on the product page and we are always here to help. Happy growing!
Failed to bloom
Janet Slarskey from NY
Owner Response: Hi Janet,
Thanks for sharing your experience. An overabundance of nitrogen or shady conditions can delay blooming. These should bloom in just a few months. I don't think you are saying you are growing these indoors, but if you are they likely need supplemental light to reach their full potential. Happy gardening!
