Cornflower, also known as Bachelor's Button, is a charming annual plant with thin, branched and relatively flexible shoots. Its flowers come in range of lovely colours, including blue, pink and white, and grow in a shape that resembles a basket. Growing 30 to 80 centimetres in height, Cornflower is highly suitable for a cut flower as well as for flower beds.
Growing: sow the seeds in a hotbed in March or directly into the soil in April. Alternatively, you can sow directly into the soil in the autumn, in which case the seeds need to be protected from cold with a cover made of spruce leaves and branches. Plant out into flower beds in 25–30x15cm spacings. The seeds sown in the spring produce plants which flower from July to August; sown in the autumn, the plants flower in June. This variety requires sunny positions with moist soils.
