Calendula Winter Sun

Hi all on this beautiful day.
I grew these Calendula Winter Sun seeds last October in a couple of pots that had daff bulbs in, they grew really quickly but didn't amount to much over winter apart from some nice green leaves. Since February they have started to flower and although really small they are very pretty, I like them. They  look lovely with the daffs and I am interested to see how they get on through the spring and maybe into summer. I am going to sow more this autumn and get a nice big clump of them,  they are only about 4in high but they do look really nice i think. Has anyone else grown these..

    They’re nice plants to have for the winter, they should be about 12” tall though. Maybe you have too many in the pot.

    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.

    Are they outside? That is impressive. Nothing copes with the wind and rain where I am, it all just gets torn to shreds.

    They are on my patio which is enclosed on 3 sides with ivy covered trellis/fence so is quite sheltered. They have been out there all winter..
