Availability: In Stock
The calendula, an old, English-cottage-garden flower is a long-blooming addition to any modern garden. Its gold and orange flowers bloom from spring to fall on fairly drought- and heat-tolerant plants. Grow it for attracting pollinators and its sunny beauty in the garden, then save some blooms for fresh or dried floral arrangements; dried petals can be used in baking or teas. Calendula gets its common name, pot marigold, because the flower resembles a marigold, and has often been used in pots of soup or stew for both color and flavor.

Blooming gold

I had heard about the healing properties of calendula, but had no idea how beautiful and easy to grow they are! I love this colorful mix, still undecided which my favorites are... The plants have so many blossoms, each with layers of petals, that I can pluck petals for infusions and still have full blooms. And they're working great as companion plantings, in the tomato patch and circling many of our fruit trees.

Long blooming beauties!

2019 was the first year I grew Calendula and I will be using them in my garden forever. I did both direct sowing and winter sowing - and had great germination rates with both methods. With moderate deadheading, I had blooms from May all the way through October (zone 5). The colors were vibrant and attracted polinators. Highly recommended!

I bought Calendula Pacific Blend seed package from a nursery and sowed in the ground a tiny sample of seeds in March this year. It took about 8 weeks to watch them flower. It appeared all the seeds germinated and are healthy looking now!

Direct sowed in mid summer was worried they would not flower in time before first frost but they did and I was able to harvest my first medicinal flowers ever and was very happy. Thank you so much for the great verities of herbal and medicinal plants.

I was really looking forward to these. I tried again and again to grow them in the spring and have been trying this fall as well but I get poor germination and then what does germinate produces a few small leaves and then ceases to grow. I've tried sowing during different seasons. I tried soaking prior to sowing and not soaking. I've tried fertilizing of course. Not sure what more to try.

Owner Response: Hello Shekhynah, Thank you for sharing your experience. The key to getting seeds to germinate is moisture, proper planting depth, and soil temperature. Seeds do not use fertilizer. As a reminder, calendula needs darkness to germinate and should be sown 1/4"-1/2" deep. The seeds germinate when soil temperatures are 68-85 degrees F. Because they do seem to germinate and then fail we would assume there is something going on in the environment. Too small of root space, compacted soil, very lean soil, over/under watering can cause small plants that decline. We hope that helps.

Germinated well, seedlings transplant well. Such pretty flowers! Grew to make salve, that turned out great as well. Now I'm just picking them for flower arrangements in the house.

Spectacular and cold tolerant calendula

Astonishingly productive and resilient - I garden at 3900ft in the high desert and this year we had a heat dome, wildfire smoke, hailstorms, and serious drought but these beauties thrived! In fact, they are still blooming even after several frosts. Great late-season pollinator attraction as well. They produced lots of seeds so I'm sure I will have more next year!
