Covering the plant with plastic wrap

Zone 03755 | Anonymous added on March 25, 2018 | Answered

Hi, I just planted some marigolds today. You said that the plant should be covered with plastic wrap. My mom says that\\\'s going to kill the plant. Is that true. Could you please tell me what are the advantages of covering it with plastic wrap? Also, when I planted my marigolds, they were right next to each other. I know it\\\'s too close, but will it kill them plant?Thanks!

If you are starting Marigold seeds, it is appropriate to cover the planting tray with a plastic cover or plastic wrap to keep the seeds moist-until germination.

If you planted Marigold plants you should not wrap your plants with plastic.

Marigold plants should be placed 12 inches apart, they will spread and fill in quite quickly.
