Sowing

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 (&frac;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.

More Info
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.
