Pot Marigold is an easy to grow, hardy annual also known as Calendula. It grows to a height of 30-50cm with bright green leaves and bright yellow or orange flowers that flower over a long period.

 

It is used as a companion plant to beans and tomatoes and attracts beneficial insects, like ladybirds, lacewings and hoverflies, which eat aphids. 

The petals are edible and are often used in salads or as a dye for food and cloth.

 

Sow seed directly into well prepared soil from March until June. Rake over lightly and keep watered if necessary. Can also be sown in situ in Autumn for extra early flowers the following spring.

 

Can also be sown in pots and transplanted when the plants are large enough at 30cm apart. Flowers from May to September.

Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering and pinch out terminal shoots to encourage bushy growth
