Hello, I’m Mandy Marigold.
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!
