These plants are widely adaptable to many conditions, temperatures, soils, etc., and are low-maintenance.

How to Care for Orange Marigold Plants

After purchasing your Orange Marigold plant, be sure to read about our recommended care instructions to ensure a healthy and happy plant all season long!

When Should I Water My Orange Marigold Flowers?

When Should I Water My Orange Marigold Flowers?

Marigold plants are fairly drought-tolerant and do not mind dry soil from time to time. We recommend checking about 1 inch down in their soil for moisture. If the soil is dry, it is time to water. If the soil is moist, hold off on watering for a day or two. Your annuals will bloom best if they receive water weekly. However, if you live in a hot climate, you may need to water them more frequently. Also, if you live in an area with lots of rain, you may need to water them less frequently. Always be sure not to overwater your flowers. Overwatering them could cause root rot and damage their growing season.

How do I Fertilize My Orange Marigold Flower?

How do I Fertilize My Orange Marigold Flower?

Marigold flowers do not need or require fertilizing. However, if your soil conditions are poor, it is best to supplement nutrients by adding fertilizer to their soil. The best thing you can do to keep your annuals thriving and healthy is to deadhead them as blossoms die off and the foliage starts browning. Instead of fertilizing your Marigolds regularly, prune and deadhead them regularly instead. Doing so will be exactly what they need to have a successful growing season.

How Much Sunlight Should My Orange Marigold Get?

How Much Sunlight Should My Orange Marigold Get?

Marigold annuals thrive in full sunlight conditions. We recommend that you give your plant at least 8 hours of full sunlight each day. If you live in an extremely hot climate, you can give your flowers a few hours of shade, but not for too long. If there is a specific spot in your garden that seems too bright for most plants to survive, plant your Marigolds here and watch them thrive. If you notice your plant is not blooming luscious and beautiful flowers, or looks leggy, check and make sure they get enough sunlight. If your Marigold is in a container, make sure you move it accordingly so that it always receives plenty of sunshine.

What Kind of Soil Do My Marigold Flowers Need?

What Kind of Soil Do My Marigold Flowers Need?

Marigolds are not particular about their soil conditions. As long as you have good, all-purpose garden soil, your plant will thrive. The only thing Marigolds are particular to is soil pH levels. They do not like acidic soils, so keep the pH above about 6.0. They also don't require soil that is particularly rich in organic matter and tends to grow and thrive best in leaner soil.
