How to grow Calendula 'Citrus Mix'

  • Full Sun

  • Medium

Try to plant in a location that enjoys full sun and remember to water moderately. Keep in mind when planting that Citrus Mix is thought of as half hardy, so it will require protection in frosts and low temperatures. Ideally plant in loamy soil and try to keep the ph of your soil between the range of 6.1 and 7.8 as Citrus Mix likes to be in weakly acidic soil to weakly alkaline soil.

Growing Citrus Mix from seed

Sow at a depth of approx. 0.2 inches (0.5 cm) and aim for a distance of at least 7.8 inches (20.0 cm) between Calendula plants. Soil temperature should be kept higher than 10°C / 50°F to ensure good germination.

By our calculations, you should look at sowing Citrus Mix about 35 days before your last frost date.

Transplanting Citrus Mix

Ensure that temperatures are mild and all chance of frost has passed before planting out, as Citrus Mix is a half hardy plant.
