I grow this little beauties not only for their culinary uses, but for far more important things, attracting pollinators that attract beneficial wasps in my garden! Love their dainty flowers, their ferny and fragrant foliage!

Had good luck with these. Planted them in not the best of soil and didn't water them as often as I should have. They still produced well and are very attractive.

I am extremely disappointed in these seeds. Not one germination from any of the seeds. I even tried two different plantings. Nothing!!!!!

I'm not a big fan of marigolds, but this looks nothing like the typical marigold. It's super dainty and smells heavenly. I really enjoyed it in my summer garden and just collected a bunch of seeds! You should definitely grow these!
