  1. Question

    Robin Kielkowski

    I am a budding herbalist but my class was cancelled due to Covid so I’m on my own for now. I planted your calendula seeds in my Delaware home garden and harvest every 2-3 days for drying using a combination of a dehydrator at 95 degrees and a well ventilated area of my home. Finding an optimal drying has been trial and error but I believe I’ve finally found a good process. My calendula seeds are lot #10380. What variety are these? A couple of sources seem to like Erfurter Orangefarbige or Resina. I am unable to find the varieties….do you carry them>

    Thank you!

      hi Robin,
      Thanks for contacting. Seems like you’re doing well. The Orange Calendula that you planted is among the best. We carry a number of different select types all of which are chosen for superior medicinal application. Our mixed calendula is the same as “Resina.” Our Orange calendula is the same as “Erfurter.”

      Hi Richo Trick Or Treat!
      If I Keep My Calendula Plants Indoors In Window Boxes Can I Cut Them Back And Winter Them And Take Cuttings In The Spring?

      Kind of, if you really want to, but in reality they’re never much good after the first flush of flowers and plants that work so easily from seeds usually don’t work well for cuttings–its an inverse relationship. hope i don’t get the trick, and they’re only tall tales because i’m tall, not because i’m making them up! r
