This is my second try at Marigolds from seeds.  The first try failed.

This time I laid seeds on top of the rock wool and sprinkled a type of growing compound lightly over top.  Then sprinkled with water.

It’s hard to see, but the seeds have sprouted.

Placed marigold in tower.  I’m hoping when it blooms it’ll help take care of aphids in the arugula.

The Marigold bloomed, but didn’t take care of the bugs.  Although just one Marigold bloom is probably not enough.  I pulled all the plants from the Tower Garden to start over since the bugs had infested the plants. I’ll plant the Marigold outside.  Since the Marigold grew well, I’ll label this a success.
