Tagetes erecta is native to Mexico despite being often referred to as African marigold. The Aztecs gathered the wild plant as well as cultivated it for medicinal, ceremonial and decorative purposes.
The optimal time to plant marigolds in Australia is spring or early summer. This will allow ample time for the plants to establish their roots before the scorching summer sun arrives.
As marigolds are not frost-resistant, it is crucial to wait until the risk of frost has passed before planting them outdoors.
