PLANT CARE ( Marigold | Calendula )
|Calendula | Marigold prefers mild summer temperatures and may die away by the end of summer in very hot climates.|
|Calendula | Marigold prefers full sun but it sometimes languishes during the hottest months unless it receives some afternoon shade.|
|Low rainfall and direct sunlight. In the winter, grow inside using a humidity tray.|
|Water frequently until the plants are established. Mature plants thrive on only occasional watering.|
Marigold | Calendula is a short-lived annual and thrives in cool weather. It may stop blooming in the heat of mid-summer, yet will likely start again in the cooler weather of fall if blossoms are kept deadheaded to encourage new growth and watered regularly. Once a hard frost kills the plants naturally, remove the whole plant, pull up the roots, and bring it to the compost pile. Save any seeds for the following year, or allow volunteer seedlings to sprout. Calendula | Marigold will not easily divide. Best to sow the seeds in place and allow plants to flourish where planted. They will easily self-seed in place, to germinate the following season and create new plants.
