Use flowers only to get the clearest golden yellow; otherwise use the entire plant at season’s end (minus the roots) to get greener shades.
Save those smaller marigolds to tuck under your tomatoes; African marigolds produce big beautiful blooms for your dye pot and are a reliable source of light- and wash-fast greeny-yellows and olive greens. Pinch the tips of newly planted marigolds to encourage branching. Snip flowers as soon as they start to wilt or flowering will start to decrease.
