    The Marigold Taishan® Mix offers some of the largest Marigold blooms available but on shorter, sturdy stems! Reaching up to 12" tall, this variety is perfect as a border plant or in a container. Marigolds are often used as a border plant around a vegetable garden as the fragrance tends to deter rabbits and deer. Along with their bright colors reliability, there are so many other reasons you will want to add the Marigold Taishan® Mix to your full sun garden this Summer! They are tolerant of heat and drought, attract pollinators to your garden and add a beautiful addition to a cut flower arrangement.  Blooms will last all Summer and into Fall. This mix includes 2 of each of the Taishan® Gold, Orange and Yellow.

    Upon Arrival…

    • Remove your plants from all packaging and inspect the condition of the growth. If you are concerned with the condition, please email us an image within 5 days of delivery.
    • If the soil seems dry upon arrival this is okay, just make sure to give the plants a good watering!
    • The new plants will need time to acclimate before they can be replanted or moved outside. We recommend placing the plant start in a bright location inside for 1-2 days. This will help perk them up!
    • Any dried or yellow leaves should be removed prior to transplanting.  Plants may appear wilted or dried out upon arrival, this is normal during the transit process due to lack of sunlight.  Water as directed and place in a bright location and they will perk right up!
    • The new plant start plugs can be safely transplanted outside into the ground or containers once night time temperatures are consistently above 50 degrees.

    Planting Advice…

    Planting Depth and Spacing: Dig a hole deep enough for the entire plug to fit with the top of the plant plug sitting flush with the soil line. Make sure the plug is not sticking up at all from the soil. Plants should be spaced 6-8” apart in the garden.

    Planting in Pots: Choose a container with drainage holes. Use a 6-8” pot for one plant or space each plug 3-4” from the side of the pot and each other if using a larger pot.

    Soil: Marigolds can adapt in a wide range of soil types. If you do have clay soil, we do recommend adding all purpose potting soil to help with drainage and aeration.

    Watering: If the top inch of the soil is dry, it means it’s time to water. When plants are young, it is important to not allow them to dry out completely. Keep the soil evenly moist but not saturated.

    Fertilize: We recommend using Jacks Bloom Booster Fertilizer. See package for specific instructions.

    Deadheading: We recommend deadheading, or pruning, the spent blooms to help set more flower buds for a longer blooming season.

    Over Winter: Marigolds are meant to be grown as an annual and cannot handle freezing temperatures. After the first hard frost, Marigolds can be removed from the garden bed or container and discarded.
