Calendula


Notes: Producing brilliant orange or yellow flowers that add colour to your garden and salads. Known for its natural anti-inflammatory properties, teas and tinctures can also be produced for internal and external ailments. Plant as a border in your garden to help repel harmful insects and attract early pollinating insects. Self-sows, making it a great soil stabilizer on sloped or disturbed areas.


Instructions: Sow seeds 1 cm deep. Germinates in 10 to 15 days. Self-sows in warmer climates. Blooms straight through till fall, providing colour to your garden when all other plants are dying back.


Habitat: Extremely versatile and easy to grow in any soil with good drainage. Prefers a slightly shaded area in hotter months but will flourish just about anywhere.


History: The word Calendula derives from the Latin word calens. Calens means the first day of the month. The Romans also gave it the name Marygold as the bloom period for Calendula coincided with the festival that celebrated the Virgin Mary. There is also a Greek legend about four wood Nymphs that fell in love with Apollo the Sun God. The Nymphs became jealous of each other and neglected their duties to Apollos sister Goddess Diana. This upset her so she turned them into four dull white flowers. This, in turn, upset Apollo who used his most golden rays to colour the flowers the brilliant golden colour we see today.


Medicinal: Calendula has a history of having anti-inflammatory properties. Great for wound healing, minor burns (including sunburn), eczema, peptic ulcers and sore throat.

German Chamomile - Best variety for teas and salves.  In the vegetable and herb garden, Chamomile is a good companion plant for basil, onion, cabbage and cucumbers. It also is known to increase the oil quality of other herbs planted around it. It's bright cheery flowers brighten up any garden. Commonly used in moon gardens for the glow they show off from the moonlight.   Basil - Thai Licorice - Thai basil has a licorice taste and clove-like scent. It produces small leaves on a purple stem and is delicious to the taste buds and the eyes. Flavourful fresh, dried or frozen in cubes. Hint: Use air temperature water rather than tap water for better production. Water seedlings far from stems (bottom watering highly recommended) especially when young.   Chervil - Great fresh or frozen. Difficult to find in stores. Use this parsley flavoured, quick growing plant as a late addition to cooked foods. 
Cool season plant that is sown in early Spring or late Summer for overwintering.
