Planting & Care
Sow seeds outdoors a few weeks before the last frost in the spring, or start them indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost. Avoid warm propagation temperatures, as they will produce weak plants. Keep the seeds covered with soil, as light inhibits germination. Start an additional set of seedlings in the summer for optimal fall flowering.

Sunlight: Full Sun, Partial Shade

Soil: Clay, Normal, loamy, Poor, Sandy

Water: Moist, well-drained

Temprature: 55 F to 60 F

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer.

Care:
  • Sow outdoors in spring in any climate.
  • In cool climates, sow indoors in spring for summer use.
  • In warm climates, sow indoors in summer for fall and winter use.
  • Cover the larger types 4 times their thickness in soil.
  • Maintaining a temperature of 68-70° F.
  • Germination takes 10-14 days.
  • When sowing seed outdoors, we recommend a maximum planting depth of 4X the width of the seed.


Harvesting: Calendula will produce lots of seed in a similar fashion to a Zinnia or Marigold. When the blooms dry out, cut them off and hang upside down in bundles. The seeds are contained in the heads, and once dry and crisp, they can be lightly hand-crushed and winnowed from the seed chaff.

Care:
  • Space seedlings 12-15 inchesvapart in rich, well-drained soil enriched with organic matter.
  • Plants thrive in sunny, cool climates; For best performance, grow 40-45° F nights.
  • Soil should be evenly moist and fertilized moderately.
  • If growing Calendula in a greenhouse, sow in January for spring blooms or in mid-August for mid-winter blooms.


Special Feature:
Calendulas are a very prolific, easy to grow annual flower.
Use
Medicinal use:
  • Used in salves, lotions and balms, the daisy-like flower is more than a pretty face, where it’s anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties are valued for soothing and restoring the skin.

Culinary use:
  • Calendula’s edible flowers and spicy leaves add zest to summer salads and will draw plenty of ooohs and ahhs when presented in a meal.

Ornamental use:
  • Long-lasting daisy-like blooms for cutting are borne on an easy-togrow plant used for edging, borders, containers, and greenhouses.
