Hello, I’m Mandy Marigold.

Marigold petals are edible and are a pretty addition to salads and cakes.

My proper name is Calendula Officinalis.

I am a herb of the sun because I open at dawn and close at sunset.

Don’t confuse me with French marigold.

I am a pot marigold with bright, yellow or orange flowers that are edible.

You can add my petals to salads, omelettes and soups to add colour.

Have a go at using my beautiful petals to decorate cakes!

If you plant me in the garden, bees love me and pollinate me!
