Calexis produces large, blazing orange cactus-shaped flowers, with unique rolled petals. Most of the vibrant, glowing blooms are double, and plants flower profusely. Also known as Pot Marigold, Calendula petals are edible. An excellent choice for vivid cool season colour in garden beds, pots and for flamboyant cut flowers.
Sow direct where they are to grow or into trays of Yates® Black Magic® Seed Raising Mix. Firm down, water gently and keep moist through germination period. Transplant or thin out when 5-7cm high.
Choose a open, sunny position that is well drained. Add Yates® Thrive® Natural Blood & Bone before planting. Water regularly and apply Yates® Thrive® Flower & Fruit Soluble Fertiliser for stronger plants. Protect from snails and slugs.
Remove spent blooms to prolong flowering. Flowers are ideal as an edible garnish, and for adding colour to salads.
Store in a cool dry place away from direct Sunlight. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
