Re: “Not Your Grandma's Marigolds

Correction! The photo caption on the single Tagetes erecta flower says "double." But it ain't.

Jeff Strehlow! yes i think they will do fine, but if you live in a cooler microclimate, maybe grow them in a pot?

Quicksilver! I did not know that about T. signata!!! Thank you!

Re: “Not Your Grandma's Marigolds

Hi Heather. I'm considering planting Mexican tarragon in the Eureka/Arcata area about 3 miles from the ocean. I'm wondering if it's warm enough here in the summers to get adequate growth. The average summer high is about 65 degrees fahrenheit .

Also, I'm wondering whether snails/slugs are an issue with this type of marigold. Thanks.
