I have wanted marigolds in my garden for a very long time. I can’t remember how many packets of seeds I have purchased and all to no avail. Then I heard an ancient tale regarding the planting of the marigold seeds. So I thought I would take a chance and follow the chant and see if it works. I now have my very first marigold!
“The marigold flower at the end of its bloom
dies back to the seed in the shape of the moon.
Plant the seed each October on the night of full moon
and then every summer the seed will form bloom.”
