Additional Information

Calendula

~115 seeds/g.

Annual. Old kitchen garden flower, 18–20" tall, also known as Pot Marigold. Beautiful daisy-like flowers feed pollinators, are good for informal bouquets, and are also edible. Blossoms can be snipped from their stems, dried and added to soups, salads and stews. They are also used in homeopathic remedies and herbal tinctures and ointments for their antiseptic and soothing qualities.

Culture: Calendulas bloom over an extremely long period, thriving in cool weather and persisting through autumn’s first frosts. Can be direct seeded in May or started indoors in cool place for early blooms. Readily self-sows. Don’t crowd, give them full sun. Deadhead to keep blooms coming and the patch attractive, or try succession plantings.
