Marigolds are frost sensitive annuals that prefer full sun and tolerate a wide variety of soils, including nutrient poor soils.
Direct sow outdoors in spring once the danger of frost has passed. Seed can also be started indoors 4-5 weeks before the last frost and transplanted outdoors after the last frost date. Sow seeds 1/2" deep and 3-4" apart. Seeds will sprout in 15-20 days. Thin seedlings so that mature plants are 18-24" apart.
