Grow the healing Calendula in your indoor garden!
With both decorative and healing properties, Calendula is truly a multi-faceted addition for your indoor garden. Calendula has been grown in the gardens of Europe since the 12th century. Mainly, the flowers were used and made into extracts, tinctures, balms, salves and applied directly to the skin.
Calendula's flower is edible - Calendula's whole plant is full of antioxidants, buds and petals are especially rich in triterpenes, flavonoids, polyphenols and carotenoids. They add colour to fresh salads and other cold dishes, including ice cubes. Calendula tea brewed from dried buds and petals is a natural remedy for anxiety and stress.

- You may thin out extra seedlings and leave one or two of the strongest per pod to thrive. This way the whole plant pod will last and provide blooms for a longer time.
- Calendula grows best with just one lamp arm as the cultivar used in this plant pod is a real dwarf in size. But, don't let the small size fool you, it still makes an impression due to its bright petal color and a long list of medicinal properties.
- Expect to see the first flowers approximately fifty days after planting.
- Use edible flowers in full bloom for a soothing tea or garnish- harvesting flowers also promotes new buds to develop.
- If you grow Calendula just as an ornamental plant, remove withered flowers with a short piece of stem- more will emerge soon.
