calendula      

i’m growing it for salve, to make pretty deep golden oil, for yellow dye (wool mordanted with alum), and for its glorious yellow → orange colour range while blooming, which it does forever.

the salve also contains chickweed and plantain and it’s rather good for bruises, cuts and abrasions.

This planting is in the Frontyard garden .

Planted.
