Micro marigolds can be used as a decoration for plates, banquets, etc, as an edible garnish for food (as long as their strong flavor is taken into account). They can also be tossed in salads to add color and flavor.
These seeds produce the most beautiful and abundant marigolds! They are perfect for cutting and they last so long in a vase- 2 weeks easily. And I love the smell and the bright yellow is just heavenly! Both colors look so pretty in fall arrangements. I will buy more for next year!
Add marigolds to homemade summer rolls with some crunchy veggies and a zesty peanut sauce for dipping. Marigold jam is also delicious and quite a lovely color. You can also, of course, use marigolds to decorate your cakes and cupcakes.
Give your garden and outdoor living spaces a shot of steady, season-long color by planting marigolds. This popular annual flower is a garden favorite because they are easy to care for, grow well from seeds, and attract pollinators. Many varieties of marigolds can also help repel root-knot nematodes, microscopic worms that live in the soil and can damage vegetable and fruit plants. Here is everything you need to know to grow marigolds.
Before planting marigolds, decide which type you want to grow. The most commonly grown marigolds are African (also called American or Aztec) and French types. African marigolds have large flower heads (up to 5 inches across) on plants that grow from 10 to 36 inches tall, making them good for fresh cutting. French marigolds are smaller and bushier, with flowers up to 2 inches across on plants that are 6 to 18 inches tall. They are excellent for planting among taller plants in need of pollination.
Apply a mulch layer after planting marigolds to help keep soil moist and help prevent weeds by blocking growth and access to sunlight. Form a 2- to 3-inch layer using Scotts bagged mulch, shredded leaves, pine straw, or some other locally available material.
One major key to getting lots of colorful marigold blooms is to pair rich, nutrient-filled soil (see above) with regular feedings of just the right plant food. A month after planting, begin feeding your marigolds with Miracle-Gro Water Soluble Bloom Booster Flower Food. It's easy to mix and apply while watering, and will provide all the nutrition your marigolds need to thrive. Check the instructions on the label to find out how much to use, and how often you should feed your plants.
In the garden, French marigolds create a colorful edging that beckons butterflies and other pollinators. African marigolds are ideal for picking for fresh arrangements. In addition to the beauty they offer, marigolds can also be planted as pest control in the vegetable garden or flower beds. They contain a chemical (thiophene) that helps control nematodes in soil. Marigold flowers make great additions to bouquets and dry well. You can also eat the petals, which have a slightly peppery flavor. Put them in salads or on baked goods, or add them to stir-fries.
Marigolds are one of the best at pest control. Marigolds attract pollinators, are low maintenance and bloom for a longtime. Removing spent blooms while not necessary, will also increase their already long bloom time. Their scent disguises other tender plants that may be more susceptible to insects. As one example, planting marigolds with carrot deters the carrot fly. Using marigolds as companion plants is highly recommended,
As the name implies, annuals are changed out seasonally; usually in spring and again when the temperature cools down in fall. In spring and summer enjoy favorites like petunias, marigolds, begonias, impatiens and more. In fall and winter fill your garden with pansies, violas, cyclamen and more. Armstrong Garden Centers has the best selection of annuals most of which are locally grown by Armstrong to ensure the best selection and horticultural expertise at every step of the growing process. Armstrong tests each plant to ensure it will perform in California's unique environment.
Our Favorite! Extra large, attractive, super-double flowers with tubular petals. The color is a pleasing, clear orange rather than the harsh orange-brown so often seen in African marigolds. Plants are rather compact, seldom exceeding 20 inches. Very uniform size is ideal for cutting, yet earns its keep in the border.

Marigolds is my first short film and won BEST DIRECTOR at Underwire Film Festival and nominated for Best Screenplay. It received rave reviews in Little White Lies, Best for Film, Smoke Screen and Varsity online at the London Short Film Festival.
A recent online search led me to a wide variety of themed décor, from pillows and plaques to banners and plates. I even found popcorn tins and other colorful containers as well as cake pops designed for the occasion.
There are also plenty of online recipes for traditional Mexican dishes like Pan de Muerto or Day of the Dead bread. For the perfect drink, Atole, a hot non-alcoholic beverage made from corn, cinnamon and vanilla is said to bring comfort.
Symbolic colors that include purple, pink, white, orange, red and yellow embellish Day of the Dead costumes and skulls. Real and faux marigolds and skeleton figures can be combined with other decorative items like papel picado, the perforated paper banners that look like lace, for a fun display.

On Monday, November 28th, between 15:00 and 16:30 NL time, the Embassy of The Netherlands in Mexico is organizing an online session to present the results of a market study. This study was conducted to identify opportunities for Dutch suppliers of starting material and (greenhouse) technology in the Mexican ornamental plants and flowers sector. A special presentation on the status of breeders' rights protection in Mexico with recommendations for Dutch breeders will be held by Leobigildo Córdova, Director of Mexico's National Seed Inspection and Certification Service (SNICS).
Consumer trends The Covid-19 pandemic accelerated existing trends in consumer behavior and distribution channels in Mexico: this has led to a rapid rise of online sales channels as well as an increased demand for flowers to create more green spaces at home or work. At the same time, the Mexican consumer is still considered a traditional buyer who continues to have a strong preference for roses and chrysanthemums in cut flowers and poinsettia, marigolds, succulents, and geraniums in pot plants. 59ce067264
