When to sow: Sept/Mar-May
Calendula tips: Very easy to grow!
Can be sown direct in rows 30cm apart, or raised in modules and transplanted. Calendula is a hardy annual so in milder areas it can be sown in the autumn and over-wintered for early blooms the following year.
Top tip: be sure to remove the spent flowers regularly (aka dead-heading) to encourage the plant to produce more.
