Wildflower - Cornflower

£1.95

The Cornflower is a cottage garden favourite which is quick and easy to grow from seed. The stunning electric blue flowers will attract bees and butterflies all summer long and they make a great cut flower too. They're a hardy annual, which means they can be sown late in autumn or very early in the spring.

When to Sow March to May and August to October. 
Where to Sow Sow direct outdoors in flowering position in a well prepared, weed free bed.
Water the area prior to sowing.
How to Sow Sow by hand, distributing the seeds evenly over the area. 
If you want a more orderly display, sow seeds in rows of straight lines or, curves for a more natural effect.
For a continuous display, make sowings at two to three-week intervals. 
What to do Next Water well until established
Once the cornflower has finished flowering, leave a few plants to die down and self seed. Others can be pulled up and composted.
Do not over fertilise because this will lead to excessive leaf growth at the expense of flowers. 
Flowering period June to September
