HOW TO GROW AFRICAN MARIGOLD FROM SEEDS
CARE FOR AFRICAN MARIGOLDS AFTER GERMINATION
Clay or dry soil is fine for African marigolds, but they prefer moist, well-draining soil. Regular watering helps to maintain moist but not soggy soil. When you notice water puddles or a squishy texture in the soil six hours after rain or watering, the soil is not draining, and your flowers may drown. As a result of drowning, the roots begin to rot, and the leaves become brown and die. Keeping your marigolds compact will prevent them from spreading out.
USES AND BENEFITS OF AFRICAN MARIGOLD
African marigold is used externally for treating sores, ulcers, eczema, conjunctivitis, rheumatism, and sore eyes. Boils, carbuncles, and earaches can be treated externally with a paste made from the leaves. It is diuretic, carminative, and vermifuge. Mumps and colds can be treated with decoction. Marigold tea can be prepared from dried flowers. The flower petals can be dried at a low temperature and then boiled in water with a tablespoon of dried flowers added before the tea is brewed.
