Marigold Seed Testers Needed
As a no-pay hobby, I have been coordinating some seed tests for a seed developer this year. For NEXT year another seed producer from Asia has supplied almost all of their amazing marigold varieties to be tested in the hot, humid southern US. I need experienced home gardeners, who have raised marigolds, to test these marigolds, please. The seeds are free and I will pay postage. I get nothing for this; testing new plants is my hobby.
This seed producer not only supplied their seeds but also seeds of top competitive marigolds. They want to test the seeds in hot, humid southern states, for which their marigolds are developed in Asia. Please look at their website (below) to see the varieties and the very interesting way marigolds are used there (click "usage" and "religion" on the left.
If you are interested in testing Marigolds next year, please let me know. Let me know how many varieties you could test. Also, specify if height matters: tall, mid-sized or small...or if that doesn't matter.
You need to agree to briefly report on the performance of the seeds/plants (I will supply suggested points to look for), plus I would very much like a picture of how they did.
This is a trial by REAL home gardeners who experience successes and failures in their garden.
I will compile a list of seed testers and update you as we proceed.
