WHEN TO PLANT MARIGOLDS
French and signet marigolds can be planted anytime through midsummer, but the tall American marigolds are best planted right away in the spring (after danger of frost has passed) because they are slower to mature.
Sow seeds directly into the garden once the soil is warm in the spring. You can start seeds indoors, but they germinate so easily outside that there’s really no advantage. Marigolds sprout within days in warm weather and plants bloom in about 8 weeks.
CHOOSING AND PREPARING A PLANTING SITE
Marigolds thrive in full sunshine and can often withstand very hot summers.
If planted in shade and cool, moist areas, they are prone to powdery mildew and won’t bloom well.
Though they grow in almost any soil, marigolds do best in moderately fertile, well-drained soil.
Prepare the soil by digging down about 6 inches to loosen it. Remove stones.

Caring for African Marigold
Germination from large, easily handled seeds is rapid, and blooms should appear within a few weeks of sowing.
When you water marigolds, allow the soil to dry somewhat between watering, then water well, then repeat the process.
The densely double flower heads of the African marigolds tend to rot in wet weather.
Do not water marigolds from overhead.
Water at the base of the plant.
