I created a new flower area in the front yard (street side) by the driveway and started filling it up with both plantings and seeds. These Marigolds are from seed and should bloom just in time for fall (45 – 55 days). The directions said to plant in flats first, then transplant but for a quarter – what the heck, direct into the ground they went and if they come up fine and if not, I’m not out much.
Here is the description:
Hedge type crackerjack grows on shrubby plants 24" tall and more, with thick branches that hold huge, fluffy blooms in the yellow, orange and gold color range. Double flowers measure 4"-5" across. Foliage is lacy. Fragrance is distinctive, clean and pungent. Resists almost every pest and disease. One of the most maintenance free and useful annuals. Even flowers through southern Florida summers. Excellent for containers to rock gardens. Long lasting as cut flowers.
5-7 days to germination.
This planting is in the Flower and Non-Edibles garden .
