    This flower Indian Prince Calendula combined with the blue cornflower and ammi majus is the inspiration for the flowers for my daughters wedding. Absolutely stunning.

    Calendula is an amazing plant. I like to use the petals in my summer salads to add that touch of glamour. I love it’s hint of sunshine in my borders and in its medicinal cream form it heals my eczema and heals rough garden hands very quickly. It’s brilliant medicinally, in the garden and on salads. Since finding out about it a few years ago I would never be without it again.

    Good morning Ben, is it possible to buy the ten pounds collection but to substitute Calendula Indian Prince for Art Shades,I feel I must have the little beauty for the ultimate Cornflower coordination. Best regards Dave

    The marigold, that goes to bed wi’ the sun
    And with him rises weeping: these are flowers.”

    […] ‘Purity’ is a very versatile flower and seems to be very happy to rub shoulders with almost any other garden flower in bloom at the same time. I like to contrast the simple and orderd beauty of Cosmos Purity with the nuttiness of Leonotis and the busyness of Calendula. […]

    Hello across the pond! Delighted to find your most amusing blog–quite after my own heart–nothing so good as obvious plant-fanatic-ery + lively writing. I am a ridiculous fan of calendula, too–lava on a mission of seduction, indeed. I look forward to reading more–assume if I follow you on twitter you’ll give the nod when new posts are up. Can’t deal w/the feeds these days.

    Hope end of summer treats your gardens well.
