In early spring, sow seeds directly in the garden soil. Calendula seeds can be sown in autumn as well. Plant seeds 1/4 inch deep, spacing them 8 to 10 inches apart. Calendula plants prefer a sunny spot but are tolerant to some shade during the day. Once established, the plant is resistant to drought, but regular watering encourages prolific blooming.


Calendula plants don’t require much upkeep. They benefit from occasional watering and light feeding for continuous blooming. Removing dry flowers will encourage new blooms. Harvesting calendula seeds is easy because they seed prolifically once flowers dry out.
