How Often Should You Water Marigold Flowers?
How much water should I give a marigold?
Watering Established Plants
Established marigolds in garden beds need a good soak once each week. Give them enough water so that the soil is moist to a depth of 6 to 8 inches. If the weather is unusually hot or windy, they'll need extra water. Water marigolds in pots when the top 1 to 2 inches of soil is dry.
Do marigolds need to be watered everyday?
Water marigolds once a week down to one-and-a-half inches. Always keep tagetes' soil gently moist by watering them to an inch deep twice per week from late spring to early autumn. If in a pot, check tagetes flowers daily and water if the top half-inch of soil is dry.
Do marigolds do well in full sun?
Marigolds need full sun and a reasonably fertile, well-drained soil. Smaller marigolds make good edging plants for borders and do well in pots, while taller or larger-flowered marigolds can be grown in large pots or in borders.
Should you deadhead marigolds?
So it's no surprise you ask, “Should I deadhead marigolds?” Experts say that deadheading is largely a matter of personal preference for most plants, but with highly modified annuals such as marigolds, it is an essential step to keep the plants blooming. So the answer is a resounding, yes.
