How to Grow

The African Marigold requires full or partial sun and soil with good drainage. These flowers also do well when they are planted in containers. Prepare soil a few weeks before you plant, till the soil approximately 6 inches deep. Plant seeds by scattering them in the garden after the last frost. For indoor planting, plant seeds in pots as soon as four to six weeks before the last frost of the season. Loosen and spread the roots when transferring to the garden after the final frost.
