Orange Marigolds in the Garden

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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 8 weeks. This quick sense of satisfaction makes them a great first-time gardening project for kids and garden newbies. 

Not to mention, marigolds are a great companion in your vegetable garden and can help protect your veggies from predators and pests.

Cannot wait to see these bloom this year, hopefully soon. This was taken a couple of years ago.
