Signet Marigolds

Tagetes tenuifolia. Not your grandmother’s Marigold, Signets form compact, billowy mounds of finely textured foliage smothered in charming little dime-sized flowers. While typical Marigold foliage can have an overwhelming scent, Signet foliage is lighter and citrusy, and the flowers are edible, adding a lemony zing to salads. We love them so much that we're offering four colors, plus a zesty mix. Bee friendly. Deer resistant. Annual. Summer to fall flowering. Height: 10" to 12".

Average seed life: 3 years.

Tagetes. Easy to grow in full sunlight, Marigolds can be direct-sown into the garden in well-draining, loamy soil after the last frost date. Plant 1⁄4" deep and keep well-watered until the seedlings emerge, about 7 days after sowing. Or, start indoors 4 to 6 weeks before the last frost date by sowing the seeds in a good seedstarting medium. Provide even moisture, strong light and good ventilation until the plants are large enough to handle. Prior to transplanting, acclimate the seedlings by gradually exposing them to outside conditions over 1 to 2 weeks. Thin or transplant seedlings 8" to 12" apart in the garden. Water moderately. A good cutting and edible flower, Marigolds are also good in containers or window boxes. Summer/fall flowering.
