How to Sow Marigold Seeds

1. Seed Tray Preparation:

  • Begin by filling a seedling tray with cocopeat to create a lightweight and moisture-retaining base.

2. Sowing:

  • Create ½ inch deep holes in the cocopeat.
  • Place 4 seeds in each hole to ensure good germination rates, as not all seeds may sprout.
  • Gently cover the seeds with a thin layer of cocopeat to protect them and maintain moisture.

3. Watering:

  • Use a spray gun or bottle to lightly mist the cocopeat, ensuring it is moist but not waterlogged.
  • Continue to spray with water on alternate days to keep the soil consistently moist, which is crucial for germination.

4. Germination:

  • Place the seed tray in a location that receives full sunlight.
  • Seeds typically germinate within a week, given adequate warmth and moisture.
