PLANT OR POT UP COLOURFUL CALENDULAS
Calendulas have edible petals but even if you have no intention of ever eating them, they’re worth planting for winter and early spring colour. They don’t mind the cold but aren’t too keen on wet soil, so plant in pots if your soil is soffy. I like to pop in few punnets of mixed seedlings as they come in yellow, red, orange and pale apricot. Pluck the petals for salads or add to bread dough and shortbread biscuits for natural colour.
