Colorado, USA, Planted these in full sun for border. Grows fast and tons of blooms! Being in full sun one should mulch and requires more water on very hot days. A weekly/bi weekly feeding should be applied for stronger stems and greater blooming action. Handles clay soils, but one should add mulch to soil before planting.

    Comments about American Meadows Marigold Seeds Sparky Mix:

    I grew these for the first time last year and used them as border along our fenceline in one of our gardens. They created a beautiful full hedge and bloomed from mid-summer all the way until the first hard frost. It created a beautiful mix of oranges, yellows and reds.

      Comments about American Meadows Marigold Seeds Sparky Mix:

      Used these marigolds around a raised bed - perfect - neighbors loved it, looked great. Bought the 1/4 lb bag and had plenty to share after surrounding the raised bed: filled a large pot, two long planters and filled in a bare area and I still have seeds. The seeds were fast to grow and flower. The plants were thick and a great ground cover.
      There are no negatives, just marigolds galore.

        Comments about American Meadows Marigold Seeds Sparky Mix:

        Needed a flower to grow in old stones that have sunk into the ground over many years. The flowers would have to grow in uncultivated soil, stones and able to smother out weeds from growing. Marigold Sparky mix was my answer to this gloomy rental back yard! I removed all the weeds possible in the stones and covered the area 3 feet wide by 50 feet long with Marigold Sparky Mix, also down the driveway and along the side of the house. I than covered the seeds with very little soil. It was amazing my Marigolds grew in these conditions. Now we can relax sitting in our back yard with a blanket of Marigolds, instead of weeds and stones!

              Tore down an old building leaving an approx 50' by 50' bare spot Purchased a 1/4 lb package of sparky marigold seed and simply broadcast the seed by hand. Created a visual masterpiece. Neighbors come to pick the flowers and just look at them.

                I planted it and it's growing very wonderfully. But it hasn't bloom yet, but when it does bloom I'm pretty sure it will turn out beautifully.
