Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Calendula 'Fiesta Gitana Mixed' is a Fleuroselect Bronze Medal winner. This hardy annual is easy and reliable, making it fun for children to grow. It is perfect for pots and also in the border which will reward you with a display until the first frosts. The petals can be added to salads for a colourful and tasty zing! Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 20cm (10").

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. The light peppery taste of the flowers can be added to breads for extra flavour with a touch of colour. Can also be used as a substitute for saffron when colouring rice dishes. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Water regularly until plants are fully established. Culinary note: Calendula flowers are edible. The petals have been used as a substitute for saffron, and they make a bright and zesty addition to salads.
Pot up calendula plants and grow them on in frost free conditions for transplanting outdoors later on. When English Marigolds are well-grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days, before planting them in borders and containers in sun or partial shade.
