For indoor seed starting:

Sow Marigold seeds 6 - 8 weeks before last frost. Use good starter soil and gently press the flower seeds into the soil and lightly cover. When Marigold seedlings are big enough to handle and after acclimatizing the seedlings to outdoor conditions, transplant outdoors after frost danger has passed.

French Marigold seeds may also be sown directly outdoors after last frost in prepared beds. Marigolds bloom from flower seed in 8 - 10 weeks.
