marigold tips

October’s official flower, the marigold, blends perfectly with the pretty hues of the season.

These annual flowers are easy to grow. Take a look at some tips to have beautiful blooms this season:

  • Marigolds require ample sunshine and thrive in moderately fertile and well-drained soil.
  • Plant tall marigolds 2 to 3 feet apart and lower-growing ones about 1 foot apart.
  • Water marigolds at the base of the plant rather than from overhead.
  • Don’t fertilize marigolds. The flowers bloom better in unfertilized soil.
  • The marigolds’ scent naturally repels animals and insects.
