With gorgeous fern like leaves and the most interesting seed pods for drying. Beautiful blooms which look great sowed in drifts and will self seed freely.


When to Sow: Sep- May

Plants dislike being transplated so best sowed direct  where they are to flower.  Sow thinly 3mm deep and keep well watered until plants are established.  When large enough to handle thin out seedlings. Seeds need cold stratification so can be sowed in autumn for nature to do thsi naturally or if sowing in springtime pop seeds into the fridge for a few weeks beforehand.

  • Please note that the majority of our seeds are packed by volume so the number of seeds indicated is an approximation.

    We make every effort to provide British seeds where possible, but in some cases our British Growers are unable to grow in sufficient quantities to meet our demand or the seeds are subject to Plant breeders' rights which means it is only possible for us to buy these seeds from certain non UK flower farms
