Starting Marigolds from seed


I have a bag of seeds from last year. Anyone have any luck starting from seed? I live in South west PA.

Thanks

Starting Marigolds from seed


I've always started my Marigolds from seed
Usually I harvest the dead flowers (seeds) from the year before & plant them the next year
One year I had about 130 Marigold plants that I grew out back & then transplanted to the front

I also collect seed from other marigolds at friends houses

Starting Marigolds from seed


Is it ok to plant the seeds without starting them in small pots? How far down should i plant seeds? Is this the right time to do it? I think we've seen our last frost, its supposed to be 85 here in Pgh this weekend

Thanks

I'm not sure where Pgh is
I haven't planted any outside yet
I have started some inside

Usually outside I just sprinkle them on the ground & cover with a very light sprinkle of dirt
After they sprout I spread them out or transplant to another area
