At the end of the season last year I grabbed a few promising, dry, flower heads and stuck them in paper sacks. They went on a shelf and were forgotten until yesterday. I harvested the seeds out of my marigold and calendula flowers, and fingers crossed that they germinate! The marigolds I am not too fussed about- they are large and tall Crackerjack mix. They look nice in the garden and are easy to grow. The calendula I am hoping for a larger patch this year- I ordered a sampler seed packet last year and only 2 or 3 plants came from it. I have a LOT of seeds now, so here is hoping!
