Description

The Kew Pollinators range of seeds from Thompson and Morgan has been specially created alongside the experts at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew to attract and support a wide range of pollinators, including bees, butterflies and beetles, as well as a number of other important pollinating insects. Helping these pollinators to thrive is hugely important for our eco-system as a whole and these seeds, in their striking packaging inspired by artwork from the Kew archives, will help to create the environment which they need to thrive, with varieties chosen to help a wide range of pollinating insects, including some night flowering plants to help moths which also play an important part in our gardens.

Ammi majus is reminiscent of Cow Parsley which softens the verges of country lanes. This tall annual produces a froth of delicate white blooms that bring a simple, elegant feel to summer borders. Commonly known as Bishops Weed, its graceful stems rise above ferny foliage, lending themselves nicely to summer bouquets.

This airy annual associates beautifully with tall grasses and summer perennials, mingling happily to soften planting schemes and create a hazy, romantic appearance. Its blooms are loved by pollinating insects, and the autumn seed heads attract Finches to the garden. Height: 140cm (55"). Spread: 50cm (20").

Sowing
Direct sow ammi majus seeds outdoors where they are to grow from April to June in full sun or semi shade, on fertile, well drained soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Sow seeds thinly, at a depth of 1.5mm (1/16") in drills spaced 30cm (12") apart. Water the ground regularly, especially during dry periods. Germination usually takes 7-21 days. When ammi seedlings are large enough to handle, thin them out to 25cm (10") apart.
More Info
Water regularly until plants become fully established. Ammi stems will require staking. Place twiggy sticks among the seedlings while they are 10cm (4") high and allow ammi plants to grow through them for support.
