My first view when waking up in the morning – a plot all covered with blooming Calendula flowers - always makes me smile . Colour, texture, smell. You can breath deeper by just watching this beauty.
To fill one bag with 10g of dried flowers you need 60 fresh ones. There is no harm done by cutting fresh ones - It encourages them to blossom more. Quoting Cleve Backster "I feel I have a truly wonderful ally – Mother Nature"
