How to Grow

Calendula can be grown all year, sown direct or in trays - cover seed with 6mm of soil. Transplant seedlings at 4cm to garden, space 30cm apart. They are wonderful on mass, creating a bright display of orange colour, as well as feeding your local bees and insects. If flower heads are left to develop seeds, self-sowing can often take place, creating a continual display of colour. 

Pests include snails & slugs.Use Organic snail pellets for control.
Sow all year
Sow direct in garden or into punnets and transplant when 5cm high
Seed packet contains approx. 60 seeds
150 seeds/gram
50-60 days to flowering - deheading will encourage more flowers. 
Uses
The Calendula Officinalis flowers are edible to humans, either dried for a saffron substitute or fresh as a colourful garnish on salads or sweets.
