Would like advice on growing Calendula either in garden, pot, or flower bed – starting with seeds.

What Does Half Annual Mean

We have some calendula seeds and it says they are half annual. What does this mean?

ANSWERS

Well-l-l-l, that's a bit of a puzzle. Calendula are annual plants, meaning they grow, flower, and make seeds in one season (year.) Some plants are biennial, meaning they spend their first year growing, and the second year producing flowers and making seeds. Half annual, or semi annual, means 1/2 a year, or every 6 months; it can refer to interest compounding, or magazine publication , but I've never seen any reference to half annual being applied to plants of any kind. Now, some varieties of calendula are described as half double, so perhaps there's a misprint on the label. In case there are other errors, here's a piece on calendula: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/calendula/growing-calendula.htm

Calendula

Do calendulas grow each year or are they just an annual plant? I am growing some calendulas. I understand that they do better if deadheaded regularly. Do they need cutting back in winter and then they come again, or are they just an annual and need to be replaced each year?
Thanks.

Calendulas are classified as "Annuals or short-lived perennials." It's winter survival is poor in colder regions nor does it tolerate extreme heat. However, this doesn't mean you can't try and see what happens - I would go ahead and cut it back and see if it comes back the following spring.

You should have no problem growing Calendula in your garden. Look for a planting location that is morning sun instead of the hot afternoon sunshine.
Here are some links with more information.
