Marigolds do best in temperate climates. They will not survive the winter; and may not do well in hot, summer conditions. Depending on the variety, they can be used in medium shade or full sunny areas or containers.

  • Seeds will germinate freely in sunny or half-sunny locations, but plants do best if planted in sunny locations with rich, well-drained soil. Marigolds typically bloom quickly from seed (in under two months). Best to deadhead dying blooms for continued production.
