(Calendula officinalis) An heirloom mixture of single and double flowers in colors ranging from pale cream to bright orange. Edible flowers have anti-inflammatory properties that can be helpful in treating a variety of intestinal ailments. Can also be used externally to heal burns, cuts, and bruises. Approx. 250 seeds per packet.
CULTURE: Start indoors a few weeks before average last frost or sow directly outdoors after danger of frost has passed. Sow seeds 1/4" deep in moist, but well-drained soil. Germination will occur in 5-15 days. Thin to one plant every 6-12". Will tolerate dry soil once established.
I recently purchase these calendula seeds from Thresh Seed through the Amazon link. I have never grown Calendula before but wanted to start this year (although starting later in the season than I would have liked). The seeds germinated wonderfully and I have strong growing plants now. Still awaiting the beautiful blooms that I am sure are soon to follow! I will be buying more seeds through Thresh Seeds!
