Our son, also known as B, has been planting and collecting seeds since I can remember. He decided to start his own seed business, called Bee's Organic Seeds, and marigold seeds are the first seeds he is offering for sale!
B helped to water and care for the marigolds in the garden last year, and then set to work collecting all the seeds in the fall. He created the custom design for his seed packets (I love it so much!), and then carefully packed each and every one. I am really proud of how hard he has worked to create his seed business, and am delighted to now be able to spread the word about it.
We're so glad to now be making these Organic Marigold Seeds available here in the shop. Each seed packet contains over 50 seeds. B is really happy to be sharing his hard work so others can enjoy these beautiful flowers in their gardens too! Purchase these seeds if you'd like to support him in this work. They would also make delightful gifts for gardeners in your lives!
We grow marigolds in our garden every year, and we always manage to squeeze more into our garden beds, finding more places to put them.
Why marigolds? They are easy to grow (good for those new to gardening), add so much beauty in the garden- their bright color is such a joy to see, and can help ward off pests near vegetable crops. Marigolds are a great companion plant in your vegetable garden- they can help reduce the harmful nematode population in the soil!
They are also a gift to the bees, butterflies, and other pollinators in your area. If you want to help the pollinators where you live, plant flowers! And when you buy organic flower seeds, you are supporting flowers that were grown in a pollinator-friendly way. Marigolds can bloom for a long time, making them good for pollinators throughout the season (which will help pollinate your vegetables and fruit.)
The flowers can also be used as a natural dye. The big bowl of marigolds in the pictures above shows our marigold flower harvest for a dye project we did (they give such a beautiful, bright yellow color!) Marigolds can also be fed as an occasional treat to your chickens- they're nutritious, and make the yolks a bright orange color.
Your support of Bee's Organic Seeds makes it possible for B to continue expanding his seed business, and doing what he loves. It brings him a lot of joy to be sharing seeds and garden goodness with others!
