Sunrise Marigold Collection
Tagetes patula. Marigolds are a natural repellent of nematodes and other garden pests. Planting marigolds in and around your tomato, eggplant, pepper and potato plants will result in healthier plants and produce. This collection contains 5 seed pkgs, one each of Vanilla, Fireball, Inca 2 Mix, Super Hero Yellow and Durango Flame.
Very easy to grow. Start inside 6-8 weeks before last frost. Start African types earlier than French types. Cover seed with 1⁄4 inches of soil and provide an average soil warmth (75 degrees F). May also be direct seeded 2 weeks before last frost. Transplant after last frost into a sunny location.
Will grow well in poor soil. Space African types 12-18 inches apart, and French types 6-8 inches apart. Deadhead regularly.
