Description

An ancient garden favourite making both a splendid border plant and is also perfect for cutting and in addition making a most attractive pot plant for the greenhouse. This lovely native UK wild flower, with its beautiful blue flowers, was once common, often as a cornfield weed, but is now rare.

Sowing Advice

For best results, seeds are sown directly into the ground where required in the spring. Alternatively, sow in late winter/early spring in gentle warmth, 15-20 degrees C. Prick out into small 3 inch or 7 cm. pots and plant in final position when the plants are established.
