Calendulas have been used for many centuries for culinary and medicinal purposes.

Please do not be too hasty to discard seeds that do not germinate; seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural germination requirements.

As with all seeds, they must have adequate water to keep them moist but not too wet.
