CALENDULA Fiesta Gitana Mix – 50 Seeds
Fiesta Gitana calendula seeds are a dwarf selection of double flowers in a rich, warm range of colors from deep orange to pastel cream. Plants are compact, growing to only 30-35cm tall, so they are perfectly suited for containers or edging the garden bed.
The flower petals are edible and look superb sprinkled over salads and smart drinks for your summer parties. Keep Fiesta Gitana calendula deadheaded for the tidiest look and the longest flowering period. Simply pull or snip off any flowers the day after they fade. Once established, Calendula need little care, so they make good candidates for xeriscaping.
The flower petals can be used to add colour to salads, rice dishes, soups, stir fries, stews, biscuits, and deserts. You can also use fresh leaves in salads.
Sow 15mm deep in moist seed raising mix in spring and autumn. 30cm apart. Germination takes 7-21days. 60-70 days till maturity. Dead-head to prolong flowering. Hardy plant, 30cm high.
