Product Description

A cottage garden favourite, Calendula, also know as the English or pot marigold is a hardy annual that will flower from late spring and all summer long.

‘Fiesta’ explodes into colour with double flowers in hot oranges and yellows from May until the first autumn frosts. They look spectacular planted en masse in beds, borders and planters and they make great cut flowers.

Calendulas like a sunny location and fertile soil, and once established they will cope very well with wet or dry weather, giving you dazzling colour, month after month, and pollinators and other insects find them extremely attractive too.

Sometimes referred to as ‘poor man’s saffron’, the petals are edible and make a colourful salad garnish with a peppery taste, and they can be used to colour and flavour rice too.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for a stunning summer display.

Supplied as 20 garden ready plants, ready to plant in your garden and growing to a height and spread of 25 cm (10 in).

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Deadhead regularly to prolong the flowing season.

Care Guide

  • Give your garden ready plants a little attention on arrival - unpack them immediately, and either mist them or stand them in water for an hour - they may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but they’ll quickly recover. If you can’t do this, they can sit in Mini Greenhouses for a week if upright and not too wet.
  • We recommend that you leave them to settle for a day somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • If planting directly into flower beds prepare the ground well, removing weeds and digging in some compost or well-rotted manure if your soil is not already rich.
  • Plant approx. 20cm (8in) apart to allow them room to grow. Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.
