I grow Calendula officinalis every year from seed. It’s a hardy annual with big curved seeds. They are very easy to grow… so if you have small children who would like to grow their own flowers then these are just perfect. This year I have grown several different types of Calendula.
I picked a very tasteful bunch of flowers today. Just marigolds, roses and honeysuckle. I’m drawn to bright colours and I don’t often do tasteful so I just couldn’t resist adding a couple of orange poppies and a few springs of orangey-red honeysuckle.
