Scabious (Scabiosa Atropurpurea Black Knight) 35 seeds (#1498)

Easy to grow, tall double flowers with masses of delicate pale stamen that appear sprinkled over the dusky petals, creating a wonderful contrast.
A classic variety for mixed 'cottage garden' borders.
From the World Botanics range.
The highest concentration of different Scabious species grow on the dry hillsides and rocky slopes of the Mediterranean. Although they can be found worldwide, providing nectar for countless insect species.
This charming and easy perennial grows best in full sun and fertile well-drained acid to alkaline soil. Deadhead regularly to encourage continued bloom and to prevent self-sowing.
A splendid companion for summer-blooming campanulas, veronicas, foxgloves, and verbascums, it is a natural for perennial borders and cottage gardens.
The blooms are perfect for cutting.

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
Sow indoors or outdoors from March to May (4-6 weeks before last frost) directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered.
Barely cover as light aids germination. Germinate the seed in the warm, moist and dark. Place the whole seed tray inside a black plastic bin-liner and put it near your boiler or in your airing cupboard.
Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days at +18-21C. Check once a day for any sign of green. Once up, they'll need cool air and maximum light.
Thin seedlings to 20 cm apart. For a continuous display make sowings at two to three weekly intervals.
Water well until plants are established.
