Start seeds six to eight weeks before the last frost date.
Soak calendula seeds in water for 15 to 20 minutes before sowing.
Sow seeds 1/4" deep in a seed starting potting mix. Press seeds on top of the soil and spread a 1/4″ layer of soil over seeds. Firm gently with your fingers.
Keep the soil moist during the germination. Cover with a layer of plastic wrap and poke enough holes in the wrap for air circulation and evaporation.
Set the tray near a window with a southern exposure, one that receives at least six hours of sun daily. Or set it under a grow or fluorescent light.
Germination will occur in five to 14 days.
Discard the plastic wrap. Remove the weaker seedlings. Rotate the seedlings if necessary so they don’t get leggy trying to reach the light.
Transplant outdoors after last frost - when seedlings develop their second/true set of leaves.
Can also be directly sown outdoors after the last frost. Grows to maturity in 6-8 weeks after sowing. Prefers light well-drained soil and will tolerate dry conditions.
Processing time 2-5 business days.
