Judge’s scorecards were full of checkmarks for Calexis, a new compact, uniform and branching Calendula. Freely blooming, it is covered with large flowers composed of rolled petals, most blooms fully double. Great for pots and garden edging, and salads too, just tug some petals out of the center disk and sprinkle on top.
Sow in the pack in early March at 21°C. Keep the seeds covered and slightly moist. Grow on at 16°C during the day and 10°C at night. Grow cool and dry to prevent stretching and use a preventative fungicide program. Transplant after 4 weeks in the full sun.
Plant 1-3 plants in a 12 cm container or plant out in a sunny spot; planting distance is 30 cm x 30 cm.
12 – 14 weeks
Heigth: 30 cm
