I haven't grown these yet but am looking forward to seeing them in bloom. I love your seed packets with the beautiful pictures of the flower and what the seedling will look like. There is so much information on the seed packet also. All those tips make for a more productive growing, especially when I have never grown a cultivar before, My Mom always had calendulas so they are special to me. Thank you for all you do to make growing a wonderful experience!!!

Not great for cutting

These IMO are not great for cutting and I am surprised they are offered by Floret Flower as a good cutting flower. The flowers lose pigment after just 1 day in the vase and look like they're dying. The stems are also short. I probably won't grow again.

Owner Response: Hi Samantha, We are sorry you didn't like 'Zeolights' as a cut flower. In case it helps, harvesting calendula in the morning, and choosing blooms that have not fully opened (petals not flat or down curved) will give the longest vase life. Also, plants flowers a bit closer together or calendula in more shade will produce longer stems. Happy gardening!

BEAUTIFUL!!!

I love the color and interesting new texture that this flower has added to my garden! We've had 4 frosts here so far (I live in NE Ohio) and these are still blooming away while most of my flowers have died!! I"m SO happy with these!! Thanks!
