Seed Saving

Calendula is monecious and has both male and female flowers on the same plant. It's pollinated by bees, but can also self-pollinate.

Calendula seed is an after-ripener. That is, the seed germinates better after 6 months of storage than if planted immediately after maturity. Quality calendula seed is the result of careful selection of the mother plants, combined with great care in the picking, curing, sifting, cleaning and storage of the seed. It produces an abundance of seed and often self-sows in your garden.
