Marigold Merriment

“You can spend your whole life traveling around the world searching for the Garden of Eden, or you can create it in your own backyard.” Khang Kijarro Nguyen

When planning your own Garden of Eden, start with easy-to-grow marigolds. Native to the New World, marigolds were  cultivated by the Aztecs for religious, medicinal, and magical purposes. The large seeds make these annuals good choices for children’s gardening activities. Seeds as well as plant cell packs can be found at local garden centers.   Plants require full sun and larger blossoms are achieved in poor soils. Better soils result in greener growth and fewer blossoms.  For more information click on the link below.
