Ammi majus sowing tips: Sow in pots or trays indoors, 6 to 8 weeks before planting out. When first true leaves appear, transplant into larger containers and take care to not disturb the long taproot. Harden off and transplant out after last frost. Or sow direct where they are to flower once temperatures are around 15 to 20°C in drills 30cm apart. Plants take approximately 100 to 110 days to bloom, successional sowings are recommended for a continuous supply as cut flower. Provide support if grown on windy sites. Cut the flowers in the morning when flowers are bright white with only a green tinge and before they start to shed pollen to last in the vase.
