Exclusivity of marigold flowers is second to none due to their impressive features. Those willing to start marigold farm must plant this favorite flower in specially maintained land. Excellent farming skill is required for this purpose. Marigold plants need utmost care for timely growth. Such farming has several advantages.

If marigolds are planted simultaneously with potatoes, onions and tomatoes they keep them safe from unexpected problems through better protection.

As a marigold farm grower you should prepare weeded plot in the very first step. Arranging best quality marigold seeds, seed dibbers, watering cans and level 2 farming equipments are important items which you should arrange for such farming. Usually 17.5 minutes of time is considered enough for marigolds to grow for certain level hence you have to have proper vigilance of them from seeding to supporting these plants grow.

Make proper arrangement and plant different plants simultaneously. When you plant marigold alongside other plants in your garden your land remains safe from different types of bugs or insects as it keeps them away which is definitely best to lessen the burden of taking extra care of other plants you have in your garden.

Marigold Categories:

Though there are countless categories of marigold but French and African marigolds are prominent. French marigold is a specific category of marigold which can’t be found everywhere although they too come in numerous varieties. You can have Frances Hoffman's marigold plant that is named after eminent plant breeder Frances Hoffman who liked it too much.

Such types of marigold require extreme carefulness. They are best choices to prepare bouquets and decorating gardens. Fast growth and bright color make marigolds most popular garden plants. They, with their wonderful color splashes, make any average garden distinctive.

Decorative Use:

These plants can be planted for developing bordering, bedding and container decorations. You don’t need doing extra effort in planting marigolds because they still remain easy option to grow with additional feature of being pest and disease free plants. They are excellent choices for making children's gardens and can be grown in any soil type.

Marigolds are grown everywhere. African Marigolds are in the limelight because of their diversity. Crackerjack Mixed Tagetes erecta is one such category of African marigolds that has large double blooms in yellow and orange shades. Likewise Inca Mix Tagetes erecta has fully double flat heads. This type of marigold has wonderful disease resistance potentiality. The choice is countless.

Medicinal Benefits:

Marigolds have lots of medicinal benefits. Plant growers must do thorough research of its major and minor advantages while planting them for the first time. They should explore other benefits of such wonderful plants besides striving to find out their best usage. Often the yellow marigold categories come with lemony, citrus flavor that has lots of benefits.

No doubt marigolds are wonderful decorating items but green foliage dissected from them makes these plants worth medicinal value. Colorful green salads prepared from marigold, pineapple sage and borage blooms are other superb benefits which first timers must know well.
