Marigold 'Boy Yellow' has 1.5 inch wide, bright yellow, double flowers. The crested flowers are produced from compact well-branched plants that grow 8 to 10 inches tall. Best look when plants are in clusters with each plant spaced about 8 inches apart.
Germination in less than two weeks at 74ºF. Surface sow seeds, light needed for best results. Once seeds start to germinate sprinkle a very thin layer of soil medium on top of them. These seeds are coated and de-tailed, making the yellow seeds easier to sow.
