You can't plant sunshine, but you can plant calendula - and that's kind of the same thing.
This gorgeous medicinal herb, also known as "Pot Marigold" grows to approximately 60cm, is fast growing and produces lovely, orange flowers. We often plant Calendula in our veg patch as it is said to repel whitefly from tomatoes and may lure aphids away from beans. The flowers also provide nectar and pollen that attracts pollinators such as bees and butterflies. It is also known to attract ladybirds, lacewings and hoverflies - which prey on aphids! A wonderful border plant, and also an excellent cut flower for your indoor vase.
Plant as per instructions on your seed packaging.
