Calendula

(Calendula oficinalis) Calendula is an annual flower native to Eurasia/North Africa. It is considered both an herb and an ornamental; the flowers and leaves are used medicinally. The blooms are also rich in resins that can help to deter some garden pests. Seeds germinate in 5-14 days. Plants benefit from starting in cooler temperatures; sow them directly outdoors a few weeks before last frost is expected, or start indoors 6 weeks before last frost. Sow seeds 1/2 inch deep. The ideal germination temperature is 55-60 F, but is fairly flexible. Deadhead to keep blooming. Companion plant with cabbage family members and tomatoes.
