Planting And Care
Chrysanthemums are sun-loving plants. Although they technically require only 6 hours of sunlight each day, the more light they receive, the better their growth, bloom and hardiness. Slight shade in hot, summer afternoons is appropriate in warmer gardening zones to prevent scorching.

- Calendula can survive in most soils, but they thrive in well-draining soil with consistent moisture.
- If you’ve planted other perennials, then you already know how to plant calendula.
- To create a good soil for your calendula, work your soil to a depth of 6 to 10 inches.
- Mix in 2 to 4 inches of organic material, such as compost or peat moss.
- The perfect soil texture can be tested by taking a handful and squeezing.
- When you open your hand, the soil shouldn’t clump or quickly fall apart. It should simply crumble.
- Calendula requires even moisture for the best growth.
- Consistent watering throughout the spring, summer and fall is essential.
Place 2 or 3 inches of a good quality potting mixture in the pot. Turn the calendula upside down and guide the plant carefully from the pot. If the plant is stubborn, tap the pot with the heel of your hand or knock it against the edge of a wooden table or potting bench to loosen the roots. Place the calendula in the new container.
