A must for bouquets with movement, stems will sway in the wind and give a profusion of blooms on top of delicate stems. Can be used in all stages of life with buds and seedspods just as pretty as the blooms themselves. For use in the border they will repeat flower if deadheaded reglarly and are a great gap filler or planted en masse in a sea of waves.

    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
