Hardy Biennial

Description – It blooms from March to april in rich, purples, pinks and starry bi-coloured combinations with white. It’s a vital nectar plant and therefore popular with butterflies, very easy to grow, normally self-seeding itself in sunny or shady positions. Over a long season it produces masses of silvery pods.

Sowing – Sow thinly outdoors in late spring-early summer in drills 3mm (1/8in) deep. 30cm (12in) apart. Keep the soil damp until germination takes place and if the seedlings become crowded, thin out to 15cm (6in) apart.

Growing – In autumn transplant to their flowering site 3cm (12in) apart. Cut the stems bearing seed pods the following early autumn and hang in bunches upside down in a cool airy room to dry.

Aftercare – Gently remove the outer seed casing before using them for floral decoration.

Flowers – April, May, June
