Fragrance beyond imagination -- lovely marigolds from Blue House Farm are bursting with divine, tangy summer smell. Blooms are normally 4" in diameter and typically golden orange in color, but can also appear with yellow shades and maroon accents. It is also claimed to deter various pests, including mosquitos, from the home.
In order to give your bouquet the longest life, give each stem a diagonal fresh cut and place in a jar of clean water. (The diagonal cut increases the surface area for each stem to uptake water.) Every couple of days, change out the water and give another fresh cut. Warm water works best.
Marigolds are a hardy cut flower which have a great vase life. You can expect to enjoy them for 7-10 days (sometimes more) with proper care.
