You can either plant Tagetes by using seeds, or by using purchased plants. If you are planting seeds, spreads them about 8 inches apart and about a half inch deep. They will need to be planted in well-drained soil.
Do not plant the seeds until all signs of frost are long gone. Water the seeds regularly and that’s about it. Your plants should begin to grow in about two to three weeks.
Depending on the type of flower you have chosen to grow, the blossom on the stem will either resemble a daisy, or look like a fluffy pom pom sitting upon a stem.
For example, African versions look like big pom poms popping out of dark green leaves. Signet versions are more daisy like. There are about five petals surrounding a center.
Tagetes are a great choice of flower to have growing. Not only are they easy to grow, but they look gorgeous when they are in full bloom.
