These flowers are the spendthrifts among annuals, bringing a wealth of gold, copper, and brass into our summer and autumn gardens. The flower’s popularity probably derives in part from its ability to bloom brightly all summer long. Marigolds may have daisy-like or carnation-like flower heads that are produced singly or in clusters. Planting: marigolds thrive in full sunshine and can often withstand very hot summers. 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. Sow seeds directly into the garden once the soil is warm in the spring. Marigolds sprout within days in warm weather and plants bloom in about 8 weeks. Moisten the soil, then sow seeds 1 inch apart and no more than 1 inch deep. While still small, thin the seedlings. Space French and signet types 8 to 10 inches apart. Larger American varieties should be at least 10 to 12 inches apart. If planting transplants, thoroughly water each plant after planting in the garden. If planting in containers, use a soil-based potting mix. Take care to space properly; marigolds grown in containers can become crowded.
