Q.At what stage do I pinch out the flower tip on marigolds to get them to bush?

The marigolds are still in the greenhouse about 6inches tall with a flower bud.

You don't have to pinch out the new buds to encourage branching. As the plant grows, stems can be pinched back at any time to promote branching. Remove spent blooms to encourage more flowers.
