Love-in-a-mist (Nigella Damascena mix) 120 seeds (#1249)

Nigella is an old cottage garden flower, a favourite for scattering wherever there is a gap in the flower border, but also good for short-term massed bedding and for drying.
For many years 'Miss Jekyll' was the only widely available variety, and it is still popular for its dependable masses of sky-blue, pink or white flowers. These last for about eight weeks, and it is worth deadheading or sowing a later batch to extend the season.
Sowing in autumn or in March, in a cold frame in paper pots in cold districts, produces early flowers.
In windy gardens, support the stems with twiggy sticks. (info: bbc.co.uk/gardening)
An easily grown plant, succeeding in any good garden soil, preferring a sunny position. A very ornamental plant.
Plants are fast-growing and often self-sow if the ground is disturbed by some means such as hoeing.
The flowers are very attractive to bees.
A greedy plant, inhibiting the growth of nearby plants, especially legumes. (info: pfaf.org)
Plants like consistent moisture. Deadheading spent flowers will extend bloom period, but will also prevent development of the attractive post-bloom seed pods. Plants will self-seed in the garden. (info: missouribotanicalgarden.org)

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
Sow seed in the garden as soon as the ground can be worked. In cool summer climates, additional sowings can be done every 3-4 weeks until mid summer. Seed may also be started indoors about 6-8 weeks prior to last spring frost date, but plants dislike transplanting and results can be disappointing. (info: missouribotanicalgarden.org)
