Marigold seeds

The botanical name for marigold is Tagetes patula. Marigolds are a relatively easy crop to grow, and have no unusual requirements. For best results, start seeds indoors: sow seeds in a sterile, soil-less seed-starting mix. Keep soil evenly moist. When seedlings emerge, place under fluorescent lights, keeping the lights just an inch or two above the tips of the plants. Continue to keep soil moist, and once plants are a few inches tall, fertilize with a dilute complete (10-10-10) fertilizer once a week. Thin seedlings to one plant per pot (if you've used small containers or "six-pack" trays), and repot to larger pots if the roots become crowded. Transplant to the garden when all danger of frost is past.  If you're a new gardener or you're not comfortable with growing seeds indoors, marigold seeds are very good candidates to plant directly in your garden rather than starting the seeds indoors.
