Nigella – Love-in-a-Mist (Organic)


Pale blue, pink and white flowers on upright, bushy plants with feathery foliage. Nigella flowers or ‘love-in-a-mist’ are a popular and traditional cottage garden flower. The blue, pink and white solitary flowers appear to sit on a bed of ‘misty’ foliage, hence the common name. The plants get about 50cm high and the blossom is followed by a decorative, inflated seed capsule that also makes a nice addition to cut flower arrangements.


When to sow: Feb – June

Spacing: 30 x 15cm

Nigella tips: Sow indoors in pots or trays from February covering the seeds with a very small amount of compost – and keep them moist.
Alternatively direct sow from April outdoors.
