Marigolds are one of the few edible flowers that add decoration and flavor in a variety of dishes such as salads, pies, and cakes. Once planted, you can expect your marigolds to bloom after a couple of months. Once the flower is mature, it is easy to harvest by snipping off the flower heads. This process is called "deadheading". To do so, follow these simple steps!
To begin, find the flower you would like to harvest, and snip right the below the flower head. We recommend using our snips which are available under the "market" tab on our website. https://edntech.com/market/snips.html.
(Note: You can also do this for flower heads that are wilted. It is important to de-head the wilted flowers as it allows the plant to divert its energy to producing newer flowers.
Once you have snipped your flower head, peel off its petals, chop, sprinkle, and enjoy!
