Special Directions for Short Season Climates

SOWING: Seed indoors in early spring. Or, start seeds in the garden after danger of frost has passed. In mild winter areas sow seeds in late summer through early fall for spring or possible fall flowering. Cover the seeds with 1/8 inch fine soil.

THINNING: When seedlings are 2 inches tall, thin to 8 to 10 inches apart. Transplant thinned plants.

GERMINATION: 10 to 15 days when temperatures are 60 to 70 degrees. Keep soil moderately moist during germination.

Ed's Special Advice

Keep the flowers cut for continual flowering. Grow best in full sun or part sun and shade. Calendulas are not fussy about soil and are easy to grow. A "must" for just about every home garden.
