Cornflower is easy to grow hardy annual. Large double blooms. Up to 90 cm tall plants make this strain an excellent variety for cutting and drying. Very popular flower seeds and easy to grow too. Cut the deadheads and the plants will keep producing through the growing season. A great addition to summer borders attracts wildlife.
Sow: Outdoors, March to October
Sow seeds thinly, cover with 0.5cm of fine soil, gently pressing to cover. Keep moist. When large enough, seedlings can be thinned and repositioned as/if required.
Late sowings will flower the following year.
Tip: Remove deadheads to prolong flowering time.
