How-to Grow: Tashkent Marigolds

Here are easy-to-follow growing instructions for Tashkent Marigolds using natural farming practices:

  1. Choose a sunny spot: Tashkent Marigolds need at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day.
  2. Prepare the soil: Remove any weeds and adding organic compost or well-rotted manure. Tashkent Marigolds thrive in well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter.
  3. Sow the seeds: Sow directly in the ground, or start them indoors in pots and transplant them when they are large enough to handle.
  4. Space the seeds or seedlings: Space plants about 10 to 12 inches apart, as Tashkent Marigolds can grow up to 18 inches tall.
  5. Water the plants: Water regularly, making sure the soil is consistently moist but not waterlogged. In hot and dry weather, you may need to water more frequently.
  6. Fertilize: Fertilize Tashkent Marigold plants once a month with a balanced organic fertilizer, such as an all-purpose vegetable fertilizer.
  7. Deadhead: Remove the spent flowers regularly to encourage continuous blooming.
  8. Keep an eye out: Watch for pests and diseases and treat them with natural solutions, such as neem oil or companion planting, before they get out of control.

By following these simple steps, you should have a beautiful and healthy Tashkent Marigold garden in no time!

Seed Saving

Step 1: Choose the Right Blooms
Wait until the marigold flowers have fully bloomed and started to fade. This is the perfect time to collect the seeds. Choose the healthiest blooms with the biggest seed heads.

Step 2: Collect the Seeds
Gently remove the seed head from the stem and place it in a dry, airy location for a few days. This will allow the seeds to dry out completely.

Step 3: Store the Seeds
Once the seeds are completely dry, carefully remove them from the seed head and store them in a cool, dry place in an airtight container. Make sure to label the container with the type of marigold and the date you collected the seeds.

Step 4: Plant the Seeds
Come springtime, you can plant the Tashkent Marigold seeds in your natural garden. Simply sow the seeds about 1/4 inch deep in well-drained soil and keep them evenly moist. In about 2-3 weeks, you should see the seeds sprout.

That's all there is to it! By saving Tashkent Marigold seeds, you'll be able to enjoy these beautiful and low-maintenance flowers for many years to come. Happy gardening!
