Sowing info

Easy to sow direct outdoors where they are to grow from April to May. Choose a position in full sun on well drained soil. Sow seeds thinly, at a depth of 1cm. Germination usually takes 5-10 days. When calendula seedlings are large enough to handle, thin them out to 30cm apart. Alternatively, sow indoors from March to April. 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 an unheated greenhouse.

Growing info
