Description

These lovely flowers were in the garden when we purchased the property here in Maine. They’ve been self-sowing and blooming ever since. I gather the flowers to make calendula infused jojoba for salves and to use on our skin. This mix of seeds will bloom in a variety of colors. They are loved by bees and butterflies and bloom late into the season, providing much needed late season food for pollinators.
