Not all of the marigolds are doing great. Here’s a picture of the biggest and the littliest.
And here’s a pictures of all of them. The bigger plants are in the black tray.
If you remember, these were started in egg cartons. At first I used two egg cartons with 12 plants in one and 24 plants in another. I later separated the one egg carton that had 24 plants into two egg cartons with 12 each. My thought is that I maybe stunted the plants a little by not allowing them enough root space when they were starting to grow.
So, for folks like me, you’ve got to learn a little tough love and be ruthless about thinning seedlings and giving them enough root space so they can grow big and strong.
