Awesome flower

Moved and had to start another Calendula patch. Last one was going for a few years without having to replant. Plenty of seeds in the pack and excellent germination in the garden.

can't wait for flowers

I had 100% germination on the seeds that I started. The seedlings now have their first true leaves. With the second set, I'll be transplanting into the garden.
