Sow Pot Marigold seeds in cell packs, press into soil and lightly cover. Kept at 70F, germination averages 7 - 14 days. Or direct sow seeds into prepared seed beds after all danger of frost has passed in the spring. Lightly cover the flower seeds with peat moss, and sow 6 seeds per foot. Thin to 8 - 12 inches apart. These plants prefer full sun, moderate water, and almost any soil with good drainage will work. Calendula flowers are long-lasting cut, and they attract bees and butterflies. Pot Marigolds perform the best in cool weather, and they can grow fall-spring in mild winter areas.
