How to Grow:

 

Calendula is cold tolreant, grows easily in any regular garden soil, and thrives in a pH range of 5.5-7.0. Pinch back young plants to encourage bushy growth. Occasional feeding is rewarded, but unnecessary. Keep plants watered, but try to avoid overhead watering as plants are susceptible to mildew. Deadhead regularly to prevent self-sowing.
Also can be sown in succession every 2-3 weeks to extand blooming.

 

Calendula repels a number of bad nematodes in the soil. Plant with tomatoes and asparagus.

 

 

Harvest: 

Harvest once the bloom is about 50% open.
