A Lot Bigger Than I Expected - Marigold Cracker Jack Mix

by Emma
(Nebraska)

Last year was my first year doing a garden in SW Nebraska. DRY from what I'm used to. We directly sowed these as a border around our vegetable garden to block out pests and weeds. Not bad for that, it was a good size garden, but they were a lot bigger than expected! At least my height, stalks thicker than my thumb. This year (ordered a second oz) we plan to use them instead as a mass planting border along our backyard fence. Love these!

All of the variety information on the David's Garden Seeds® website, including the days to maturity, color and size are based on data from tests done at specific locations. Many factors, including geographic location, daytime and nighttime temperatures, the availability of plant nutrients, many unknown climate factors and insects/pest interact to determine a variety's performance. For information on which varieties will perform best in your area, we recommend that you contact your local county extension agent or a Master Gardener.
