Description

Queen Sophia is our go-to for companion planting, barely one foot tall and covered in dozens of gorgeous blooms. We tuck Queen Sophia between cabbages, at the ends of beds and along fences for a bright border. She also thrives in containers! You’ll find Queen Sophia throughout our fields attracting butterflies and other beneficial insects among all our vegetables and herbs while her roots exude compounds detracting pesky nematodes. Easy to grow with charming ebullience, marigolds attract butterflies and countless beneficial pollinators above the ground while deterring pest nematodes below the ground. If you’re interested in companion planting or interplanting, grow Fruition’s organic Queen Sophia seeds: she’s a scant foot tall and wide! If you’re looking for a hedgerow with oceans of blooms, sow Pinwheel. At Fruition, we sow marigold seeds in soil blocks 4 weeks before final frost to transplant after final frost.

    You can’t go wrong with this classic, and I don’t think anyone can look at a marigold and not smile. The plants were dense, bushy, and absolutely loaded with blossoms until a hard freeze finally took them out. Some powdery mildew and spider mite issues, but that’s just how it rolls with marigolds around here.
