What are the pros? Everything!
What are the cons? Nothing
My little girl sowed these directly into our first year garden this past April. Now in the hot/humid summer of the south, they are the ONLY thing thriving! Amazed at their germination rate, healthy green foliage, beautiful blooms and I love the fragrance. I even uprooted some to transplant elsewhere in the garden and they ALL survived and are growing well. Incidentally, every marigold we bought from the big box store (I really didn't expect much from the seeds) has been disease and pest ridden - we yanked them all but NOT these! Will buy and plant again.
