Petunias and Marigolds for the Home Garden

News Article


Plants are popular for a reason. For standbys such as petunias and marigolds it's because they are easy to grow, they bloom reliably all summer, they are available in a wide range of colors and flower forms, and they have few insect and disease problems. 


See the ISU Extension & Outreach Yard & Garden news release from February 22, 2012 for more information about selecting and growing petunias, and the Yard & Garden news release from March 1, 2012 to learn  when and how to start marigolds and when to plant them outside.
