golds: fertilizer is not so important for these plants as for some others. Use a balanced fertilizer (1:1:1 or 3:1:2 proportions) once in the early spring. Learn more about marigolds here: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/marigold/growing-marigold-flowers.htm
You can use a commercial fertilizer, or organic fertilizer. If you want to go organic, the best thing is to work compost (decomposed organic matter) into the soil before planting.
