Question
hi i was just wandering how long it takes a marygold to grow from a seed to the flowering stage thank you so much for time

Answer
Marigolds will generally germinate in about 7 days and then reach the flowering stage in approximately four weeks. They reach their peak in 8 weeks, which is when they will completely branch out and produce the most flowers.  Pinching the spent flowers is very important in order to promote continuous flowering and stockier plants.

Thanks for writing, and have a great day.

Mike
