Planting & Care

Water: Water well throughout the gardening season.

Temprature: Apply a liquid flower fertilizer several times during the gardening season to promote big, beautiful blossoms.

Fertilizer: Add a general purpose fertilizer once a month. Once your Calendula plants are established, they should grow well, even if left unattended.

Care:
  • Pinch off spent flowers on a regular basis to extend the blooming period.
  • Mulch to prevent weeds, conserve moisture and help keep roots cool.

  • 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:
  • cut flowers.
