Bountiful Beauty

Easy to grow. I started them inside because I have a short growing season with a very dry climate and challenging growing conditions. I transplanted them to multiple places. They have done super well. So very many flowers on each plant. I Love these cheerful flowers. I also like the friendly and fast service of Pinetree Garden Seeds and the pricing is great. Thanks so much!

Marvel Yellow Marigold

First time buying from Pinetree, but definitely not the last. We were on 3 weeks vacation, away from home during the time of germination, ready to find a disaster. But we find a beautiful garden full of healthy and bright marigolds! Thanks to God for the rain and thanks to Pinetree for quality seeds that take care of themselves.
