Janie Yellow Marigold Seeds

(P) Pkt of 50 seeds
Item #01322-PK-P1


Incredible flower power

Neat in the heat, Janie Yellow Marigold is both the earliest and most floriferous French marigold we know, earning our highest recommendation for garden performance and nonstop beauty. Beginning just 6 weeks after sowing and continuing all summer long, these sunny, 2-inch blooms drape the dwarf 8- to 10-inch plants in a soft mantle. Both the blooms and the plant keep their neat shape despite hot weather—this dwarf reaches just 8 to 10 inches high and 6 to 8 inches wide, with an exceptionally uniform habit.

Very free-blooming, Janie Yellow Marigold is a great choice for the front of the border, edging, and containers of all types. Even effective as a nematode-repellent in the vegetable garden. And the yellow blooms really bring in the butterflies.

Sow direct Janie Yellow Marigold Seeds in the garden when the soil has warmed, or start seeds indoors in late winter. Very easy to grow in the sunny garden.

Excellent bloomer all summer long

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

100% germination. I planted these in yellow and orange in early May in Northern Oklahoma (zone 7) and they have filled in every nook and cranny in the flower bed and are still blooming profusely in early September. Goes well with the Arizona sunset hummingbird mint which is also still outperforming all of my other flowers.

These seeds are great. They went from seed to bloom in 35 days under grow lights! Beautiful lemon yellow color. Have had great results with Parkseed seeds.

Spectacular & Tough

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Sowed in situ in May, 2-years in a row in up-state NY. Janie Yellow needed no dead heading and tolerated my benign neglect when it came to watering in July & August. It put on a bright, fresh looking show up through October. Vigorous, neat in habit and quick to bloom.

Small but Mighty

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I've grown this 2 years in a row and plan on this year, as well. These are short in stature but produce a mass abundance of blossoms all summer long up until the first frost. YLike previous reviewer mentioned they do have a red tinged center when openning but open fully to a bright clear yellow. As with all marigolds dead heading is a must to keep looking tidy and encourage more blooms.
