Resina Calendula | id:52896 | Calendula officinalis | Ecologically grown | Annual | Open Pollinated | Heirloom
Developed by medicinal herb pioneer Mark Wheeler at Pacific Botanicals, Resina is the outcome of his search for the calendula with the highest resin content. It has mostly single petals and a combination of orange and yellow flowers. Great for infusing oils that are intended for use in herbal salves and burn ointments because of its strong therapeutic properties. Calendula petals are edible, but remove the flower base before eating. Calendula look great in patio containers, bloom all summer.
Companion plants: Chard, Lettuce, Tomato, Carrot, Thyme, Parsley, Cucumber, Peas, Asparagus, Radish, Peppers. 
Far from: Sage, Potato.
Planting tip: Soak in warm water for up to 12H to improve germination. Sow indoors 3-4 weeks before planting or direct sow in early spring. Pinch back young plants to encourage bushy growth. Keep plants watered, but try to avoid overhead watering as they’re susceptible to mildew. Pinch plant at 9” height for vigorous growth. For a longer bloom period, deadhead spent flowers.
Harvesting tip: Harvest in morning after dew has dried, when blossoms are half-open.
