Lovely cheerful color

I'm in zone 6, Connecticut. I received 19 seeds. I started 12 indoors in a sunny window on April 10th. In 3 days, 11/12 germinated and I transferred them to pots and a few in the ground in May. The ones in pots are "petite", but the ones in the ground are 2 feet tall. They are blooming like mad and I'll have plenty of seeds saved to plant next spring. A bit pricey for so few seeds, but I love the smell and how cheerful they are.

A Mille de Fleur of Marigolds

One plant produced a dome of petite & fragrant marigolds. Germination was quick. Seeds started indoors under a grow lamp.

You guys are fantastic! We are having a terrible drought here in the West, & so some seeds either don't sprout outside, or won't grow very well, despite watering & fertilizing. It is just too doggone hot! But I don't put the blame on you; my seeds generally came up well in the house, using a heat mat & a grow lamp.
