One seed packet filled with organic, open pollinated, heirloom seeds grown and collected by hand on our small scale farm. For expert and aspiring gardeners. A creative, environmentally conscious alternative to conventional seed.

{mixed french marigold}
Tagetes patula
50+ seeds

A mix of french marigold seeds including orange, yellow, and red-orange. Marigolds are perfect for the organic gardener, serving as a live natural repellent for many insects. Marigolds are the a companion plant to all vegetables; they attract bees and butterflies as well as serving to repel unwanted insects in the garden such as Tomato Hornworm, Colorado Potato Beetle, and Squash Bugs. Not a vegetable gardener? Marigolds look and smell beautiful in any flower or container garden.

Shorter and not as upright as African Marigolds, French Marigolds form mounds that are often wider than they are tall. These aromatic annuals are easy to grow and brighten the garden with their cheerful shades of yellow, orange and red.
