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.
we have been getting your seeds for probably at least 20 years. They have always been very good and germinate well. We used them at 7000 feet in New Mexico after leaving Maine: same growing zone :-). And now at 5500 feet in New Mexico.thank you. I have been in the middle of a move and so I plantedSome things in containers: the flowers,the onions, the chard, the peas all did very well. I have just planted the cucumbers, the beans and the squash in the ground and all our up-and-coming :-). Thanking the Lord and you! Joan.Corn will have to wait till next year! Hope you have a good weekend!
I love this marigold variety, and grow it every year. The flowers are more compact and button-like than other French marigolds, and they aren’t intrusive in their spread. They are perfect for interplanting; I think they look especially lovely grown with kale. I also like them in hanging baskets in areas where trailing plants might get damaged. Germination is usually very high. They are easy to grow. Deadheading keeps them blooming until frost.
These grew about 10” tall but had a very lovely flowering. They kept to themselves and weren’t your typical over bearing sturdy run of the mill marigold. Will grow again.
