The Cornflower is a classic British wildflower and a great garden plant. Plants form bright blue flowers on strong wiry stems from June to August. Growing to about 60cm in height, these look great in a border, grown together in groups or dotted amongst other plants in a cottage or wildflower garden. These are good cut flowers.
Centaurea likes full sun and a rich well drained soil. Regular feeding and water will increase flowering. Cornflowers have become rare in their natural habitat. These seeds come from a cultivated source.
Pack of approx 300 seeds. Sow in the autumn/winter for an early start, protecting the seedlings over winter in a coldframe or greenhouse, or sow directly in the soil in the spring. Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.
