Once the marigold seedlings appear, remove the plastic cover and position the tray to a location where the seedlings will get at least 5 hours of light daily. Keep the potting mix damp by watering from below. This will help to prevent damping off.
Sometimes Calendulas are called ‘Pot Marigolds’ but they are not related to the Tagetes that most people know as marigolds.
There are four different types of Marigold Flowers. African Marigolds, which tend to be tall; French Marigolds which tend to be dwarf; Triploid multi-coloured Marigolds, which are a hybrid between African and French types; and Single Marigolds, which have long stems and resemble daisies.
Sow Marigold seeds from February to March in trays or pots filled with damp potting mix. Cover the seeds with a thin layer of vermiculite and cover the pot or tray with plastic to maintain moisture levels. Place the tray in a warm spot. 65-70F is ideal, and germination should occur within 7 to 10 days.
How to Grow Marigolds from Seed
Marigolds, or Tagetes are versatile, easy to grow and easy to care for. They enjoy full sun and grow well in both dry or moist soils. Their hardiness adds to their appeals as bedding plants and container plants.
This lovely new Marigold has large semi-double creamy yellow flowers splashed with eye-catching red flecks. Perfect for borders, containers and pots providing weeks of colour throughout the summer and is the long awaited sister variety of Vanilla Cream. Outstanding and very reliable. 10-12”. HHA.
Once the seedlings have 2 sets of true leaves, they can be transplanted to their own pots where they can grow indoors under light until after the last frost has passed.
