Description
These showy Pot Marigolds are a breeding breakthrough, bringing a completely new flower shape to your garden! The fully double, cactus flowers boast dark brown eyes, surrounded by a collar of unusual, rolled petals. Like all Pot Marigolds, Calendula ‘Calexis’ are extremely easy to grow, tolerating even the poorest of soils. This colourful duo is perfect for filling pots, beds and borders with a bright splash of yellow and orange. They make excellent cut flowers too! Height and spread: 30cm (12").


2 packets (100 calendula seeds, 50 of each variety) (KB1946)

Sowing

Direct sow calendula seeds outdoors where they are to grow from April to May. Choose a position in full sun on well drained soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Sow seeds thinly, at a depth of 1cm (half an inch) in drills spaced 30cm (12") apart and cover seed with its own depth of soil to exclude light. Water the ground regularly, especially during dry periods. Germination usually takes 5-10 days. When calendula seedlings are large enough to handle, thin them out to 20cm (8”) apart.

Alternatively, sow indoors from March to April at a temperature of 18-23C (65-73F). When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. For winter or early spring flowering, sow calendula in late summer or early autumn and grow plants on in a cool greenhouse or conservatory.

More Info
Water regularly until plants are fully established. Deadhead faded calendula flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced and prevent them from self seeding. Culinary note: Calendula flowers are edible. The petals have been used as a substitute for saffron, and they make a bright and zesty addition to salads.
