About Marigold Bonanza Harmony
Marigolds date back to before Victorian times. The aromatic leaves, feathery and fern-like, also repel deer and many insects. Marigold Harmony is exceptionally easy to grow and look beautiful all season long. They create constant color for pots, boxes or the garden border.

Planting and Growing Marigold
Make sure your Marigold “harden off” to cool nights and windy conditions before planting. This requires leaving them outside in a protected area for a few days otherwise, they may wilt after planting. Choose an area that is sunny or partly sunny. Prepare your planting hole by turning the soil at least a shovel size deep and wide and be sure the hole is filled with plenty of organic matter for best results. Remove your plant from its pack and gently loosen the root ball. Plant deep enough to cover the top of the root ball. Press down firmly on the soil and then water it in. Consider fertilizing once or twice a season. You can mulch if you like but not too close to the plant to avoid rot.
