You can find Calendula as a garden native to South East Asia, Western Europe and the Mediterranean.

Calendula is an often ignored and much underrated flower which, besides Calendula's natural attractive appearance also has a wide range of surprising and invaluable magical everyday uses. 

Gardeners frequently use Calendula as a favourite companion plant in their vegetable gardens.

Not only does Calendula help repels insect pests but also the roots of the Calendula plant grow to form active relationships with the soil fungi, making Calendula naturally beneficial to the soil.

You may be amazed to learn that the petals of Calendula are edible and can be used to brighten up both the appearance and taste of salads.

What does Calendula taste like? Calendula blossoms are peppery, tangy, and spicy.
