Calendula is a plant that is related to the marigold. The calendula flower is often used in gardens as an ornamental plant. The petals of the calendula flower can be used in salads, soups, and other dishes. The calendula flower can also be brewed into a tea.
Calendula oil is also extracted from the plant and has healing properties that can be used to treat skin conditions such as rashes and cuts. When planting calendula seeds, it is important to note that they need full sun and well-drained soil. Additionally, calendula seeds should be planted in the spring after the last frost date.
Once the calendula seeds have germinated, they will need to be thinned so that they are not overcrowded. Calendulas will bloom in late summer or early fall.
All of our flower seeds are open pollinated, meaning they have been pollinated by insects, birds, wind, or other natural mechanisms.
