Introducing the radiant Centaurea cyanus, commonly known as the Cornflower, now available in a stunning red hue that is sure to turn heads in your garden! Known for their striking appearance, these blooms not only create visually captivating compositions in the ground and in pots but also blend seamlessly into wildflower meadows and naturalistic displays. Standing at a versatile height of 50-80 cm, these Cornflowers are an excellent addition to sun-drenched borders, bringing a dash of midsummer's beauty to your outdoor space.

The structure of the Cornflower is as fascinating as its colour. With a desirously branched posture and angular, hairy stems, they add not only colour but also texture to your garden. The leaves are intricately divided at the base, while those encasing the stems taper elegantly towards the tips. Blooming from June to August, the flower heads range from 2.5 to 5 cm, featuring a delicate core surrounded by distinctly toothed petals that form its characteristic shape. Despite their delicate appearance, these flowers are surprisingly drought-resistant, thriving both in garden beds and containers - perfect for adding splendour to balconies and terraces.

Not just a feast for the eyes, the Cornflower is a valuable nectar source, attracting a myriad of insects throughout its blooming period. They also make exceptionally long-lasting bouquets that maintain their unique beauty over time. For the culinary adventurous, the flower petals can be used in salads or as a decorative garnish for desserts, adding a touch of elegance to your dishes.

These easy-to-grow seeds should be sown directly into the ground from April to June, at a depth of 0.5 – 1 cm, and will begin to germinate within 8-14 days. They flourish best in well-drained soil located in full sunlight and require occasional weeding. Pinching back the plants can encourage more blooms. A recommended spacing of 30 x 15 cm between seedlings usually yields optimum results.

Each packet contains 0.6 g of Cornflower (Centaurea cyanus) seeds in vibrant red. Cultivation information and basic plant care tips are conveniently included on the back of the package, ensuring you have all the guidance needed to get started on cultivating these enchanting flowers.

Sow, grow and let your garden glow with the splendid Red Cornflower, a surefire way to make your gardening experience both rewarding and picturesque!

Where do our seeds come from?

Thanks to a long-standing cooperation with them we were able to develop the most adequate storing and dispatch conditions, guaranteeing that you always receive fresh and carefully tested batches of seeds. Exclusion of the middlemen from the whole process not only makes it possible for us to avoid sending out-of-date seeds that might have been lying too long on a warehouse shelf, but also ensures the most attractive price for top quality products.

The quality control process

All our seeds must pass a four-stage quality control process.

Stage one begins with a careful selection of the suppliers. Than we proceed with controlling their crops, foreign producers are not excluded from the quality control process. Plants are checked at every stage of their development: when they start to grow, during blooming and when they start bearing fruit (seeds). At this stage the most important thing is to ensure proper spacing of the plants. Thanks to that obtaining the desired morphological characteristics of each particular species or variety, such as colour, height and shape, can be ensured.

Stage two consists of a detailed verification tests in laboratory conditions. With the use of the highest quality equipment by the highly qualified staff, our suppliers perform more than 30 000 quality checks annually. The seeds that do not meet our requirements are subject to technological refining processes, including drying, cleaning, upgrading and testing again.

Stage three starts with sowing seeds in selected control plots. That way we obtain valuable, exact information concerning their germination that must be maintained at an appropriate level. Simultaneously, the varietal identity of each species is checked at this stage.

Stage four takes place in our warehouses and consists of eliminating seeds that have been stored for too long on our shelves and replacing them with new batches. Each package is stamped with a unique batch number and also with the sow-by-date.

All four stages combined allow us to state with confidence that the seeds we deliver comply with the highest standards and have completed all required control stages with flying colours.
