I've been collecting a long list of plants for companion planting. Will be winter sowing the seeds.
I'm weeding out my list :0) Looking for only carefree, easy plants. Two on my list, I'm unfamiliar with, candytuft and calendula. Plantfiles doesn't have, or very few, zipcode reports of either. Should I just cut these from my list?
Calendula does best in fall planting, then dies back in the spring. It can't handle the heat. Candytuft does better, but flees when it gets really hot. Maybe if it was planted in the shade of some plants it might work, but I've never had luck with growing it through the summer.
