Calendula are actually short-lived tender perennials that are grown as annuals in Canada. Large 10 cm blooms in a nice range of colours -apricot, cream, orange and yellow. They flower generously through the summer on well-branched plants that grow to 45 cm in height. Calendula is also known as the pot marigold and grows nicely in containers!

One of the easiest flowers to grow. Try using petals in salads. Pick when in full bloom to dry for homemade teas, soaps, and calendula cream.

Calendula is a versatile plant that can be used for its culinary and healing properties and for long-lasting cut flowers.

Very easy to grow!  These tender perennials are grown as annuals in Canada. Adaptable to poor soil and will tolerate light shade! Direct sow seed in the garden in mid to late May sowing seed 6 mm deep. When seedlings are 20-30 cm high,  thin seedlings to 20 cm apart. For an early start, sow seeds indoors in a soil-less medium in early April-May  Keep soil temperature at 21 C  for the 5-10 day germination period. Once germinated grow-on at a lower temperature of 10-13 C before hardening off and transplanting to a sunny spot with well-draining soil. Calendula can re-seed itself but it is not invasive.

Germination rate: 77%
