Calendula Growing Tips and Advice

Calendula craves rich well drained soil and partial shade, since it prefers cool temperatures. This annual steadily grows to about to about two feet.

Planting Calendula

Sow your seeds in the early springtime (when soil temperature has reached 60 degrees F) and sprinkle soil lightly over the seeds. The seeds should germinate after about 2 weeks. Each plant or seedling should be separated by about 10 inches. Harvest your calendula flowers as they open. If you leave some of the flowers open, this herb will reseed itself.


Days to Harvest: Any time
Days to Germinate: 14-21
