About Marigold Hero
The bold and fancy colors of the famous French Marigold Hero make them an easy and irresistible garden choice! They are an old-fashioned flower and at 10” tall, they will fit in anywhere. Their size makes them ideal for pots as well. Wherever you put them, they are easy to grow. Their fragrance puts them high on the list of deer resistant plants.
Planting and Growing Marigolds
Make sure you “harden off” your Marigold to cool nights and windy conditions before planting. This requires leaving them outside in a protected area for a few days otherwise. 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. 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.
