Caring for Calendula

  • Select a spot for calendula that receives full sun. Calendulas do not require any special soil.
  • Plant calendula seeds in the spring after the last frost in your area.
  • Plant seeds about 1/4 to 1/2 inch (.64 to 1.27 cm) deep and 4 to 6 (10.16 to 15.24 cm) apart.
  • Water the seedbed immediately after planting being careful not to wash the seeds out of their spots.
  • Water the plants as needed to keep the soil moist, but be careful not to overwater.
  • The soil should not be soaking wet.
  • When the calendula seedlings are about 3 inches (7.62 cm) high, thin them so that the remaining plants are 8 to 12 inches (20.32 to 30.48 cm) apart.
