Marigolds are robust plants that bring a lot of bright color to your garden. They are rather easy to grow, enjoy sunny locations, and make great garden-mates for vegetables - as their musky, pungent scent can help reduce meddlesome insect infestations. They come in assorted colors, including commonly yellow, orange, orange-and-maroon, and white. They are also known as a popular flower in religious ceremonies around the world.

Galletta's grows "Big Headed" African and "Little Headed" French Marigolds in a large assortment of colors. Galletta's only grows the highest quality seeds and seedlings.

  • Ideal for sunny or half-sunny locations.
  • The soil should be well-drained, moist and fertile.
  • They tend to like high-calcium, higher pH.
  • They do not need regular watering other than during dry spells.
  • Try not to water the flower petals directly, as they can turn mushy and reduce the flower's lifespan. Some species are tougher to this than others.
  • Sunnier areas tend to produce more flowers.
  • Shadier areas tend to produce more leaves and taller stalks.
  • Careful not to bend the stalks near the flower. If you do, it is advisable to cut them off.
  • Excellent garden-mates for tomato, eggplant, pepper, tobacco and potato.
  • Add potash fertilizers to prolong the flowering period.
  • Pinch off the first flowers before they open. This will lead to a larger number of flowers.
  • Some species are rabbit-, deer- and rodent-resistant.
  • They are susceptible to damage by slugs and snails.
  • Believed to be good as a topical skin ointment for various usages, such as sunburn, varicose veins, and even warts.
  • Also known by the name Tagetes.



Galletta's is open every day with an annual opening on May 1st through all Summer long. Located in the Town of Oswego, New York, USA - just off West 5th Street near Minetto, and between Fulton and a short drive from the City of Oswego, NY. Directions.
