Cornflower is one of the hardiest and easiest flowers to grow and the masses of dark mauve, double flower heads will be stunning in the border. This variety makes for an ideal choice for a cut flower and dries brilliantly too. A long standing favourite. Extremely attractive to bees. Prefers full sun and a rich well drained soil.

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.
