Regular readers will know only too well that I grow lots of pot marigolds (calendula officinalis) which I call Flighty’s favourites. Last autumn I collected seed, that I sowed about a month or so back, and let some self-seed the first of which has almost flowered.
This year I’m going to try and take photos of all the distinct colour variations, of which I think there should be at least ten.
I’m going to do separate posts, of which this is the first, as a record of Pot marigolds Flighty’s favourites – 2013.
Here’s another one that’s almost flowering.
Chiltern Seeds in their catalogue for their Mixture of all Varieties reads To bring back fun into gardening, this is a jolly mixture of Marigolds to brighten gardens, lives and outlooks.
