 How to grow

Choose a sunny spot: For optimal growth, calendula thrives in full sun. Make sure to choose an area in your garden that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Prepare the soil: Calendula prefers well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. Enhance your soil's fertility by adding compost or well-rotted manure. Plant the seeds: In early spring or fall, you can sow calendula seeds directly into the ground. Scatter the seeds thinly and cover them with a thin layer of soil. Water the soil gently to keep it moist. Water regularly: Calendula requires regular watering, but be sure not to overwater. In hot weather, water deeply once a week, or more often if necessary. Deadhead regularly: To stimulate more blooms, make sure to deadhead the spent flowers. Simply pinch off the dried flower heads or cut them off with scissors. Harvest the flowers: Calendula flowers can be harvested once they're fully opened.
