Care: Reseeds easily. Deadheading prolongs blooms and reduces reseeding. Pinch back to encourage a bushy growth habit. Calendulas bloom best in cooler temperatures and low humidity. If they start to decline in the hot weather, cut back and they will rebloom later in the season. They will live through light frosts and make a great late season flower.

Germination was spotty. Not sure if it was the hot June and July. Only got one plant to come to maturity.
