    How to Plant Fiesta Gitana Calendula

    About Calendula

    A non-stop heirloom favorite, Calendula has long been beloved for its prolific bloom! Also sometimes known as "pot marigold", Calendula seeds are notoriously easy to grow. Calendula is typically grown for its floral beauty, but it is also famously used as an edible flower as well.

    When to Plant Calendula Seeds

    Calendula can be sown directly outdoors, after the threat of frost. They can also be started indoors in trays, 3-4 weeks before your final frost date.

    Where to Plant Calendula Seeds

    Calendula does well in Full Sun and is tolerant of partial shade. Keep in mind that Calendula can struggle in hot summer heat, so would benefit from afternoon shade.

    How to Plant Calendula Seeds

    Plant Calendula seeds in rows, pressing 1/2 inch deep, and allowing 5 inches of space - this covering is important as sunlight can disrupt germination. Seeds should germinate within a week.

    How to Care for Calendula

    Pinch off spent blooms to encourage new growth. A layer of mulch in the Spring around the base of the emerged plants may help discourage weeds and keep your soil moist.
