Marigolds Information

Marigolds are easy to grow and a perfect addition to any garden. Not only do they add a fantastic splash of color to your garden, but they are amazing for drawing the attention of bees and other pollinators! Marigolds have a long bloom season, from spring to late summer or early fall, and are the least favorite flower to a lot of garden pests. Paired with crops, a gardener could easily deter garden pests from his garden.


  • Color: Marigold flowers come in a spectrum of colors, including bright yellows, oranges, reds, and bi-color combinations.
  • Height: Marigolds can grow anywhere from 6 inches to 3 feet tall depending on the variety.
  • Foliage: The foliage is usually dark green with a slightly spicy scent, adding to their pest-repelling qualities.

Growing Conditions:

  • Sunlight: Full sun (6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day).
  • Soil: Well-draining soil; they are not particular about soil quality and can thrive in poor soils.
  • Watering: Moderate watering; marigolds are somewhat drought-tolerant but prefer regular watering without waterlogging.


  • Spacing: Space marigold plants 6-12 inches apart, depending on the variety.
  • Planting Time: Plant marigolds after the danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed up.

Care Tips:

  • Deadheading: Regular deadheading of spent blooms encourages continuous flowering.
  • Fertilizing: Marigolds do not require heavy fertilization; a light application of balanced fertilizer can be applied if needed.


  • Gardens and Borders: Due to their vibrant colors and compact growth, these plants are ideal for garden beds, borders, and containers.
  • Companion Planting: Effective in repelling nematodes and other pests when planted alongside vegetables and other plants.
  • Cut Flowers: Long-lasting and colorful marigold flowers make excellent cut flowers for bouquets and floral arrangements.
