150 seeds. Tagetes patula. Annual.
Marigold 'Sparky Mix' has flowers in shades of yellow, gold, orange and red. This 1950s heirloom has 2-inch double and single blooms. The flowers often start out red and turn gold. Marigolds are great tucked in-between vegetables. I often start marigold seeds in place of seeds that failed to germinate in my spring growing flats because they sprout so fast.
Height 12 inches. Spacing 8 inches.
Sowing Marigold Seeds:
Sow seeds outdoors after the last frost date. Or start indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost date. Lightly cover the seeds with soil. Full sun.
