Marigold planting tips
- Marigolds can withstand bright sun and lots of heat, making them ideal for our climate.
- They like moderately fertile soil, with good drainage. Too much nitrogen can encourage leaf growth at the expense of flowers.
- Once established, pinch off their tops to get them to grow bushier. Remove heads of dying flowers to encourage more flowers to grow.
