Lemon Gem Marigolds are a fun-sized bush variety perfect for beds, borders, and containers. Flowers attract beneficial insects, are edible and abundant. The lacy foliage has a pleasant citrus scent. Remove the petals from the base of the flower before eating. Although they tend to grow on shorter stems, flowers can be used as cut flowers and make a great filler flower.
Planting Instructions: Transplanting is recommended.  Sow into cell flats 4-6 weeks before the last frost, lightly covering the seed with soil. Harden off and transplant out after the last frost. Or direct seed after the danger frost has passed, sow 1/4" deep. Pinching encourages branching.
