Scatter the seeds evenly, and cover very lightly with soil. Make sure the area is kept moist through germination. When the seedlings are 5cm to 10cm tall, thin them out and leave a spacing of 20cm between each plant.

Alternatively, grow in pots using the same directions as above. Calendula Marigold can bloom in every month of the year. The flowers of Calendula are edible and will brighten up any dish.

Pot Marigold can also be sown from August to September to produce flowers that will bloom early in the following year.
