Marigolds are one of the most well-known, beloved, and grown flowers in the world.

You’ve probably seen them a thousand times, but what about growing them?

Gardening question of the day: how long do marigolds take to grow?

Marigolds are fast-growing plants, they germinate from seeds and mature into flowers in as little as 6 to 8 weeks (depending on the type you planted, the time of year, the weather, and more). These few short weeks are much quicker than with other popular species, at any rate.

Marigolds need a lot of sunlight, so make sure to plant them in a sunny spot in the garden, separately or as companion plants, if you want them to grow as quickly as possible.
