For 2010, Plant Marigold and Squash

It’s the year of the marigold and the year of the squash, according to the National Garden Bureau.

| March 12, 2010

The National Garden Bureau urges everyone to swing into spring and plant marigolds and squash this year.

The marigold is one of the most popular annuals found in North American gardens, according the NGB’s fact sheet. Since the 1920s, marigold breeding has developed hundreds of new varieties, and marigold seeds are large, easy to handle and reliable germinators (in warm, moist soil).

Squash was one of the first crops grown in the New World, and they are easy for the beginning gardener to grow, are highly nutritious and are commonly designated as summer or winter squash.

Learn more about marigolds and squash from the fact sheets on the website of the National Garden Bureau, as well as myriad gardening tips and facts, as well as links to other great sites.
