Calendula officinalis

‘Bronze Beauty’ is a versatile soft peachy-cream calendula with a reverse cranberry stripe and a chocolate brown eye. The soft palate is perfect for those wishing to incorporate calnedulas into their garden but prefering a pastel shade. Cup shaped flower heads are smaller than most calendula varieties yet borne on tall stems, making them perfect for arrangements. Calendulas are the fastest flowers to bloom from seeds - in just 2 months. Often called English marigolds or pot marigolds, the plants are loved by beneficial insects. Petals can be used as fabric dye, are edible and are used medicinally as salves.


SEED COUNT: 50 approx.


Each seed sold supports public plant breeding research at University of Wisconsin-Madison.

 

ABOUT TRANSITION FARM

  • Seed produced organically/bio-dynamically is better suited to organic/bio-dynamic growing conditions.

  • We are breeding our seed for flavour, resilience in a low input growing condition and acclimation to our Southern Hemisphere, southern Victorian latitude and climate.

  • Conventional seed production is one of the most chemically intensive types of agriculture.

Bio-dynamic seed crops are grown in living soil within a diverse thriving ecosystem.  

From the time the seed sends out its first roots, it is encouraged to access minerals and nutrients using feeder roots and to form complex symbiotic relationships.  It is nurtured throughout its life by focusing on the health of the whole ecosystem to maintain the balance within the individual plant.  By using photosynthesis to accesses nutrients and build cells, the full nature of the plant’s expression has been guided by sunlight.
