CALENDULA PACIFIC BEAUTY

Description
Pacific Beauty Mixed Calendula Seeds 5080. Calendula are actually short lived tender perennials (hardy to zone 9) that are grown as annuals in Canada. Spectacular 10 cm (4″) blooms in a delightful range of colours – yellow, orange, apricot and cream. Flowers freely through the summer on well-branched plants that grow to 45 cm (18″) in height. Calendula is also known as the pot marigold – a reference to either its ability to grow quite nicely in containers or the fact the flowers were often used in food preparation! Without a doubt one of the most adaptable and easiest to grow flower there is. This product is part of the Container Flower Collection; click here to check it out.

How To Grow
100 seed/gram. Very easy to grow! Adaptable to poor soil and will tolerate light shade! Direct sow seed in the garden in mid to late May sowing seed 6 mm (1/4″) deep. Protect seedlings from rabbits. Eventually thin seedlings to 20 cm (8″) apart. For an early start, sow seeds indoors in a soil-less medium in early April. Keep at 21 C (70 F) for the 5-10 day germination period then grow-on at a lower temperature of 10-13 C (50-55 F) before hardening off and transplanting to a sunny spot with well draining soil. Calendula can re-seed itself but it is not invasive.
