How to Thin: Marigolds

Thin Marigold seedlings so the plants have enough room to grow and produce plenty of giant orange blossoms! These make fantastic pest-deterrents, so it's essential to have good flower production.


HOW TO THIN Marigolds:

  1. First, water the Seedsheet to saturate the soil and avoid damaging the roots. 
  2. Second, select the healthiest plants and gently pull out the extras with your thumb and pointer finger.
  3. Thin Marigolds to 2-plants so they have enough room to grow.
  4. Pat down the soil around the remaining plants.
  5. Compost the extra seedlings, or plant them in another area of fresh soil.
  6. Watch the remaining two plants grow large leaves and big blossoms.

Happy Gardening!
