Cut Flower Marigold Plugs: Sowing the Seed

Share |
 

 From North to South America, Cut Flower Marigold Plugs are transplanted into fields July and August, to harvest for the Day of the Dead at the end of October. Located on the Central Coast in Carpinteria, California, Sun Coast Nursery has specialized in plug and liners for the floral and nursery industry. Sun Coast develops young plants for hundreds of acres of farmland year-round and now does specialized marigold plug production of the "Day of the Dead".

We recommend starting our Hybrid F1 Marigold seed in plug trays of 200 or 288 holes per tray. A healthy young plant promotes uniform growth in the field or nursery. Flats help growers manage moisture levels and reduce root damage when transplanting.

Here are some snapshots from our visits to the Sun Coast Nursery over the past few weeks.
