Calendula likes to reseed itself and it's really good at it, yet over the years I have heard that it's good to re-plant new seed to strengthen the flowers.
I resisted for years because I figured the seed was just perfect, having grown right there and replanted itself. A small miracle, really.
But last year I did buy new seed and replanted my garden and lo and behold if they aren't the most lovely early bloomers!
This is their first year of reseeding and some of the plants even survived the winter.
I have grand plans for more production this year which, lucky for me, means being in the garden with my plant lovelies more.
