About Marigold Tangerine Gem
Their leaves and flowers have a most delicate appearance but they are tough in every other way. Marigold Tangerine Gem were truly gems in my garden with their mass of tiny blossoms that were in constant bloom no matter the weather. They draped along the edge and everyone admired them. No pest will ever bother a marigold! You'll find Marigolds on most lists of deer resistant plants.

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 shady. 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.
