Cut Flower Seeds from Sow Seeds Ltd
Nigella Miss Jekyll White is a gorgeous small white flower with a ruff of white petals, feathery foliage and green twisted stamens. Used fresh they are lovely in cut flower arrangements and if the flowers are allowed to go to seed, the dried seed pods make unusual flowers for floral displays!
Nigella Miss Jekyll White is an easy and quick to grow hardy annual flower. It is best direct sown to the final border as the seedlings dislike being transplanted. They can be sown into open ground from March to May or August to September. Autumn sown seed will germinate to produce small plants that will overwinter and flower late spring to early summer. Spring sowings will flower later the same year.
Nigella is also known as Love in a Mist, it grows to 30-40cm tall with an abundance of flowers from June to August. Keep deadheading to encourage more flowers although do leave some to go to seed for the striking seed pods.
Nigella Miss Jekyll White is loved by bees & beneficial insects and a Cottage Garden favourite.
