Marigolds are a favorite, no-fuss annual that can bring the color of sunshine to your garden, as well as butterflies, bees, ladybugs, and other beneficial insects. Give them full sun and some well-draining soil and watch them bloom from late spring until fall.
Marigold seeds germinate quickly, within just a few days, and bloom in about 6-8 weeks (after transplant). This quick sense of satisfaction makes them a great first-time gardening project for kids and garden newbies.
Marigolds are a great companion in your vegetable garden and can help protect your veggies from predators and pests
