Direct sow in fall or early spring, planting ¼” below the surface. To start seed indoors, plant ¼” deep in individual pots or a flat; keep evenly moist and at a temperature of 60-65 degrees until germination, which should take place within 5-10 days. Transplant or thin seedlings to 10-12” apart. Calendula can adapt to almost any soil, but prefers well-drained, poor or average soil. Since this plant prefers cool temperatures, it will appreciate filtered shade.
Once established, Calendula does not need regular watering; for the best blooms it should not be over-watered. To keep the plant bushy and neat, occasionally pinch off the tops of the developing stalks. If deadheaded regularly, it will produce profuse blossoms all season long; in hotter regions, it may stop blooming in the heat of summer and begin again in fall. This plant will readily reseed itself. Calendula can also be grown in containers.
