Details

Where do our garden heirlooms come from? From the hands and minds, tastes and visions of many individuals.While some heirlooms are preserved for their history, it'€™s important that we continue to create the heirlooms of tomorrow. Years from now, one of the people gardeners will be telling stories about is Frank Morton. For the last 25 plus years, Frank has been selecting and crossing, discovering, and creating new open-pollinated varieties of lettuce, kale, broccoli, herbs, and flowers. Rather than seek to control, patent, or license these exciting crosses, Frank releases them to the public, encouraging what he calls "€œEcological Crop Improvement".€ We'€™ve taken on his exquisite Flashback Calendula series which takes the standard Calendula Officianalis and gives it a new flashy range of colors. We'€™re sure that this mix, which we will continue to re-select over time, as well as Frank's many other introductions, will become contemporary heirlooms. "€œHeirloom varieties are not the end of the line,"€ says Frank, "€œthey are the beginning of new lines". Select seed from your favorites and create your own artistic interpretation of the Calendula.

Direct sow around last spring frost or 10 weeks before first fall frost. Calendula is hardy and can stand cool weather in both spring and fall. Grows easily and self-sows. Sow in succession 2-3 weeks apart through August for continual blooms until a hard frost.
Elia Gurna questions definitions of natural beauty in an increasingly artificial world, and agrees with Brecht: “Art is not a mirror held up to society, but a hammer with which to shape it.”
