Calendula Orange King with its huge orange flowers this is a real stunner, the absolutely beautiful double blooms make it an ideal candidate to use as a cut flower or to brighten up garden borders from June through to September, Orange King's stems can grow to 20cm.

Pot marigolds are so called not because they should be grown in a pot but because of their traditional use in cooking often being used a substitute for saffron, they are used in middle eastern dishes and their petals can also be added to salads.

This variety is ideal in a sunny border where it will grow into a delightful, bushy plant with a spread of 25 cm.

Sow Calendula Orange King outdoors from March to May, prepare the site in advance by removing any weeds, break up the soil to create a crumbly soil, raking over the surface to produce a fine seedbed.

Average packet contents 150 seeds
