Description Sowing More Info Delivery
An excellent annual for growing in almost any area of the garden, with unbeatable value to boot! The mix of striking blue blooms seemingly float on top a sea of delicate fennel-like foliage. Scatter seed wherever you want to bring a splash of blue - these easy annuals need little upkeep. Attractive swollen seed heads follow the flowers - shake them around the garden for future displays, or dry them for autumn decorations. Much loved by bees and butterflies. Height: 45cm (18in). Spread: 30cm (12in).

Culinary note: The seeds have a strong aroma and spicy taste, they can be used as a condiment or spice to flavour cakes, breads and curries. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Sowing Months Flowering Months
Water Love in a mist regularly until plants are fully established. Faded Nigella flowers can be left in place for decorative seed pods. Alternatively deadhead spent Nigella blooms to prevent them from self seeding.
Direct sow Nigella seeds outdoors where they are to grow from April to May. Choose a position in full sun on well drained soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Sow seeds thinly, at a depth of 1cm (1/2") and cover seed with its own depth of soil to exclude light. Water the ground regularly, especially during dry periods. Germination usually takes 14-30 days. When Love in a mist seedlings are large enough to handle, thin them out to 30cm (12") apart.

Alternatively, sow Nigella indoors from March to April at a temperature of 18-29C (65-85F). When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors.
