Harvested from the gardens at Monticello.
Seeds of this hardy, cool-season annual were planted by Jefferson at his boyhood home, Shadwell, in 1767. Often called "Marygold" by gardeners before 1800, this self-seeding species with single yellow and orange flowers has been used for culinary and medicinal purposes since the Middle Ages.

Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last spring frost at 70°F. Transplant to cell-packs once they have several true leaves, then harden off and transplant outdoors after last frost. In cooler regions, seeds can also be direct-sown just before the last frost. Approximately 20-30 seeds per packet.

Exposure Planting Method Planting Depth Plant Spacing Size at Maturity Zone
Full Sun Transplant 1/4” 12” apart 12-18” Hardy Annual
