Day 94 of 365 days in the community garden

Collect your Calendula seeds now - Calendula seeds can be collected and stored, or simply sprinkled around your garden where you want them (they can get quite numerous so be careful if you don't want them springing up all over your garden). These flowering annuals are lovely to look at and great for encouraging beneficial predatory insects such as hoverflies and pollinators such as bees in your garden. Any winter frost will kill calendula right back, but seeds that were dropped on the ground happily germinate when temperatures warm up again.
