The Calendula Sprouts
About 4 days ago I planted some Calendula I had received for free. The seed packet had said "For planting 2007 Organic Mix" which includes 2 types of yellow and 2 types of orange. I was sure being as old as they were, probably harvested in 2006, my chances were slim they would grow. I grabbed some peat pots and threw in 10 of them anyways! Well this morning I did have one emerging from the soil already. So it appears that I will get a few of them anyhow! I just don't know where in my gardens I would put them yet, I didn't actually have faith they would sprout. I'll probably mix them in my sunflower bed, that should have enough room to mix in more yellow and orange medium height flowers.
