Here at Urbanfarmacy calendula is our star plant. It’s easy to grow, hardy, produces lovely bright orange flowers and best of all is super easy to make into a lovely oil that can be used as a base for so many different skin and hair care blends.

Last year we saved lots of calendula seed and have now sown 5 trays worth which have been growing strong providing a glut of plants as you can see below.

They are now ready to pot on so that each plant can grow nice a strong before we plant them out in the community. You can also see our yarrow growing in the background.

lots and lots of calendula
