Teaser: Spectacular 10 cm (4") blooms in a delightful range of colours - yellow, orange, apricot and cream.
Description:

Calendulas are actually short lived tender perennials (hardy to zone 9) that are grown as annuals in Canada. Spectacular 10 cm (4") blooms in a delightful range of colours - yellow, orange, apricot and cream. Flowers freely through the summer on well-branched plants that grow to 45 cm (18") in height. Calendula is also known as the pot marigold - a reference to either its ability to grow quite nicely in containers or the fact the flowers were often used in food preparation! Without a doubt one of the most adaptable and easiest to grow flower there is.

How To Grow 100 seeds/gram Very easy to grow! Adaptable to poor soil and will tolerate light shade! Direct sow seed in the garden in mid to late May sowing seed 6 mm (1/4") deep. Protect seedlings from rabbits. Eventually thin seedlings to 20 cm (8") apart. For an early start, sow seeds indoors in a soil-less medium in early April. Keep at 21 C (70 F) for the 5-10 day germination period then grow-on at a lower temperature of 10-13 C (50-55 F) before hardening off and transplanting to a sunny spot with well draining soil. Calendula can re-seed itself but it is not invasive.
