Description

350 Organic Calendula Seeds, Greek Calendula Flowers, Calendula Officinalis, easy pot flower, medicinal flower.

Seed longitivity: about 2 years

Calendula are considered by many gardening experts as one of the most versatile flowers to grow in a garden, especially since they are easy to grow, and tolerate most soils. Like most hardy annuals, it is easy to grow and can be simply sown where it is to flower. It is tolerant of any well-drained soil, even quite poor ones.

Cheerful and bright, use Calendula alone or in combination with other flowering annuals and perennials in beds, borders or containers. Calendula is prolific and durable and so are perfect candidates for cutting and flower arrangements.

Easy gardening tips

Sowing: Sow directly in March to April or in August to September.
Easily sown directly into soil in late summer or early autumn in milder climates. Will do well in moist soil, but requires good drainage. The optimum growing temperature is 18 to 20°C (65 to 70°F). Germination will usually take 14 to 21 days.

Sowing Direct:
Sow thinly, pressing the seed with your finger, 6mm (¼in) deep in drills 20- 30cm (8-12in) apart in well-cultivated soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Water ground regularly, especially in dry periods. When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings until they are finally 20-30cm (8-12in) apart in spring.

Cultivation:
Sowing to flowering takes about 18 weeks, grow in full sun for best blooms. The flowers are perfect for cutting, pinch out the terminal buds to encourage more flowers. Keeping the plants dead-headed makes them practically perennial.

Harvesting:
The flowers can be harvested anytime they are in full bloom. If the stem, leaves and flower are to be dried for an arrangement, snip the stem near ground level. If only the flower is to be dried, snip it off from the stem just below its' base. Whole plants and flowers can be easily dried, especially in a dehydrator.

Calendula uses

Medicinal Uses:
Calendula has a long history as a medicinal herb. Calendula was grown in monastery gardens throughout medieval Europe and was highly valued for its ability to heal wounds.
Historically, Calendula flowers have been considered beneficial in reducing inflammation, promoting wound healing and was used as an antiseptic. Externally, the flowers and leaves can be made into an ointment or powder to treat a variety of skin diseases and has been seen effective in treatment of skin ulcerations and eczema.

Make calendula infused oil:
I create annually calendula infused olive oil. I place the dried flowers into a jar and cover with oil. Shake and let sit for an hour or so. Check to see if there is enough oil. It should cover the flowers by at least half an inch or if the flowers are floating, have a half inch at the bottom with no flowers.
Place the jar in the sun, on a picnic table outdoors (if you’re in a warm climate), or in a sunny window.
Shake the jar daily if possible, for up to six weeks. I usually use mine after four weeks. You will notice the oil turn yellow and it will smell kind of toasty or nutty. That’s when you know it’s ready to use.
Strain the oil. (I keep the used petals in the freezer until I need them for a batch of homemade soap. I often just sprinkle the petals right into a batch of soap as this is one herb that is not discolored by the lye. In most cases reactive lye will cause dried herbs to turn brown, but calendula will remain yellow for the life of the soap.)

Skin conditions:
Calendula has been effective in treating various skin conditions. It possesses anti-inflammatory properties to naturally heal cuts, wounds and other inflammatory skin diseases like psoriasis, acne etc. It has amazing healing properties. I use the flowers to create my light moisturizing healing salve.

Edible Uses:
The flowers have a pungent, spicy flavour. Only the flowers petals should be eaten as the centre is quite bitter.
The petals are used to flavour fish and meat soups, to add flavour and interest to cakes, breads, puddings, egg dishes and salads and in rice as a substitute for saffron.
They make a bright and zesty addition to tossed salads or use them to decorate cakes.
