Growing and Caring for Calendula Plants:

Calendula plants are low-maintenance and easy to grow, making them ideal for gardeners of all experience levels. To ensure the best results, follow these simple tips:

  1. Planting: Sow Calendula seeds directly outdoors in spring or early summer after the danger of frost has passed. You can also start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost date and transplant them later. Space seeds about 8-12 inches apart in well-draining soil, with full sun to light shade exposure.

  2. Watering: Calendula plants are drought-tolerant but prefer consistent moisture. Therefore, water regularly, especially during dry spells, encourages healthy growth and abundant blooms.

  3. Fertilizing: Calendula flowers do not require much fertilization, but you can apply a slow-release granular fertilizer or a balanced liquid fertilizer during the growing season for optimal growth.

  4. Pruning: Deadhead spent flowers regularly to encourage continuous blooming and maintain a tidy appearance.

  5. Pests and Diseases: Calendula plants are generally pest-resistant but may be affected by aphids, white flies, or spider mites. Keep your garden clean, use insecticidal soap, or introduce beneficial insects like ladybugs to prevent these issues. Calendula is also resistant to most diseases but can be affected by powdery mildew or rust. Ensure proper air circulation and avoid overhead watering to minimize these risks.
