@jmq They do but sometimes not successfully due to (I believe) natural factors like wind which carries away the seeds. I tried letting them self-seed for several years and there was a few times where nothing grew. I live in a place where it can get quite windy beginning of spring.

Hi @mosh306 20×25 cm is fine yes. I have this rule of thumb: if I’m only planting a line then I’ll plant them closer together (so 20cm for your marigolds) but if I’m covering a surface like a square or rectangle I’ll give them more space (so 25 in this case). Also when I’m planting a surface I shift each row by half a spacing, it looks nicer kinda like the stars on the US flag.
