Description
Useful compact plants for quickly and easily brightening up borders or patio containers, Marigolds are well-loved for their impressive show of flowers which keep on coming all summer long. These stocky, well branched Calendula 'Calexis Orange' are a fantastic example, producing multiple showy cactus-like flowers per plant in a cheery shade or orange with an eye catching rusty orange centre. Low maintenance and unfussy, they're the perfect choice for virtually any sunny spot. Height and Spread: 20-30cm (8-12").

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.
