Marigold 'Bonanza' ready to plant

Each year, I try to start more seeds rather than direct sow and allow the birds to snack on the expensive seeds. This year's crops have been more successful than ever! In fact, these 'Bonanza' marigolds are ready to transplant outdoors already! They had 94% germination and have grown into strong, sturdy plants quickly. Looking forward to having them in the vegetable garden this season. I love my seeds from Pinetree!

my favorite marigold mix

I have been growing these for years now to plant with vegetables, especially tomatoes and eggplant. They are good sized plants (about 8-10 ins.) and the flowers last a long time before they need deadheading.

big, bushy plants. vigorous & covered w/blooms. seems to deter rabbits. good late food for bumblebees

Very Fast Germination!

I ordered my seeds last month, but waited until yesterday to sow indoors.Unbelievably, they've practically all germinated by today! I will update in about a month or so with their progress & overall quality/growth, but as of now I felt I had to post a review. :smile:
