An Overview of Orange African Marigold Dwarf Flower
Marigolds are fast-growing plants, and most varieties are self-seeding, which means they'll drop seeds and spread across your yard or garden. Limit the ability to self-seed by hanging dead before the flower sets seeds. Usually, their maximum lifespan is less than a year, even when started early in the year indoors rather than from direct seed in the garden.

Benefits of Orange African Marigold Dwarf Flower
African marigold is mostly used externally to treat wounds, sores, eczema, conjunctivitis, rheumatism, and sore eyes. Boils, boils and earaches can be treated externally with powdered leaves. It is diuretic, destructive and antidiarrheal. Mumps and colds can be treated with a decoction. Marigold flower tea can be made from dried flowers.
How to Care And Sow Orange African Marigold Dwarf Flower Seeds
Full sun or partial shade and well-drained soil are required for these annuals. African marigolds can also be grown in containers. You should prepare the soil about 6 inches deep a few weeks before you plan to plant by removing the weeds and grass. Compost or other organic matter can also provide nutrients to the soil. When the last frost has passed, scatter the seeds around the garden. Seeds germinate between 20 and 22 degrees Celsius and appear 7 to 14 days after being planted.
Clay and dry soil both are good for African marigolds, but they prefer moist, well-drained soil. Regular watering helps to maintain moisture but not soggy soil. When you notice puddles or porous texture in the soil six hours after rain or watering, the soil won't drain and your flowers can drown. As a result of drowning, the roots begin to rot, and the leaves turn brown and die. Keeping your marigolds compact will prevent them from spreading.
