Marvel™ Orange African Marigold Care

The Marvel™ Orange African Marigold is drought tolerant, making it a good pick for busy or forgetful gardeners. Consistent water, especially during a dry period, is needed to retain flowers and encourage continuous blooming. Use moist, well-drained soil and plant in full sun. Apply a slow-release fertilizer in the spring.

Remove spent flowers to encourage more prolific blooming. Trim back leggy stems by midsummer to promote more branching and flowering. Remove all growth after the first frost.

Marvel™ Orange African Marigold Spacing

Marvel™ Orange African Marigold plants reach 16 to 18 inches tall and 10 to 12 inches wide. Space plants 10 to 12 inches apart to create a dense planting.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
