Q.Will marigold seeds grow if they have begun to germinate over the winter?

I saved my marigold seeds as I always do. In a paper bag in the basement. When I got ready to plant, there was a lot of orange color in the bag…not just black seeds! I went ahead and planted them. Will they produce flowers, or are they ruined?

Seeds that have become wet and may have partially germinated are not likely to be successful planted into the garden.
I would recommend tossing them and purchasing new seeds.
