What are the pros? handles heat well

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

I planted these about two months late, and after they sprouted,they seemed to grow slow. We have had a lot of rain too, which washed most of my other seeds away. These kept on growing and are full of bright yellow and orange cute flowers, now for about two months. They still have buds growing all over the short bushes,and it is the middle of September! In July, we had heat waves for over two weeks, then rain for three days, and humid too. These flowers do not seem to have a problem at all. I will be planting these in the front of the house next year, for some summer color.

What are the pros? Grew well

What are the cons? Not PETITE!

Review:

As others have said for the 2019 seeds, these grew huge! About 3 feet high and wide. Planted around the raised vegetable bed and it took over in every direction. If I had wanted a single large plant somewhere, would have been great.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, tons of flowers

What are the cons? Very large

Review:

Grew easily with tons of flowers & very large, healthy looking plats. Put along my garden and they are massive, more like the size of a mum. I would grow these again, but start indoors and transplant around my yard for huge beautiful flowers all summer long.

What are the pros? Attractive bushy variety

What are the cons? Bigger than expected

Review:

My grandmother always grew marigolds, and i was looking for cute petite marigolds for an edging for pest control. These grew so well and are great strong bushy type plants with multiple blooms, which is part of what I was looking for... not like the itty bitty single flower varieties you get at a nursery. I planted these in front of my strawberries to deter the bunnies, but they definitely grew MUCH bigger than expected. Most of them are easily 2 feet tall and dwarfed my strawberries! Luckily, the odd weather this year meant my strawberries were pretty pooped out by the time these grew tall enough to be an issue for them, but I will definitely be moving/not planting this variety in that particular location again. Definitely keepers for curb appeal though, as these are very attractive plants!

What are the pros? Blooms-when they FINALLY bloom

What are the cons? Massive height, slow to bloom

Review:

This was my first time growing marigolds (and first year starting anything from seed), and I'm so disappointed in these.10-12" my booty! All of my marigolds are 2' tall or taller! I direct planted these seeds around my raised vegetable beds to encourage pollinator visits with their bright, lovely blooms. I wish I hadn't bothered. They are all giant, and about 75% of them only decided to bloomed THIS week. It's the middle of August. They bloomed only after I had to pull some out of the ground since they were killing off my veggie plants. A fair number seem unable to withstand their bulk and have fallen over after our recent rains. I wish I had been more draconian with pruning; I just didn't know how bad it would get. I would only plant these again in a very open location.
