Blooming on Schedule
I’ve never grown Calendula before, but I got some seeds at our local market from someone else with a yarden (a garden that covers the entire yard). I planted the seeds last fall and finally, I have plants!
In light of this, I am trying my hand at infusing an oil. I’ve never done this before, so I will let you know how it goes. If you have any advice, please leave a comment!
My colleague, Jade Shutes, has a great Calendula PDF on her school’s website. It says that the name Calendula comes from the plant’s affinity to bloom on schedule. How funny, we thought, because we’ve been working towards blooming on our own schedule!
