      A succus is basically a preserved juice–you grind up the fresh flowers, press them out in a tincture press and preserve back with a little alcohol. The extract you’re thinking of is probably Calendula tincture, which is best made from the dried flowers ground up and macerated with alcohol and water. Read “making plant medicine” for more info on all this. r

      Hi Steve, Any of the 3 cultivars we have available in seed form are equally useful. You just want to avoid the “pacific beauty” type cultivars and you’ll be fine.

      Hi Judy,
      Calendula grows almost anywhere. We recommend to plant directly in the garden as they are very sensitive to transplant.

      Hi Janet,
      Yes, that’s the etymology of Calendula, blooms during every month of the “calends” (calender).
