Product Description

 Nigella damascena

 

 

 |1250 Seeds.

 

This is a beautiful mix of delicate shades of blue, pink and white blooms, Plants have finely cut, bright green leaves that resembles fennel leaves. Light green, lacy, finely divided threadlike bracts form the “mist” surrounding the jewel-like flowers. Love in a Mist is a summer bloomer that has found its way to many Cottage Gardens. Height is generally 18-24 inches tall. As all Nigella has fine threadlike leaves and will charm you with 1.5 inch flowers at the end of the branch.  You can use this as an excellent cut flower as it forms a horned seed capsule that are beautiful in dried arrangements. Prefers cool weather. Easily reseeds, a patch of Love-In-A-Mist may very well come back year after year from seed, adding an effortless cool airy feeling to your garden each spring. Choose a site that gets either full sun or at least morning sun. Nigella is not particular about soil quality, but it does not like to remain wet.

1250 Seeds per Package.

How To Grow Nigella-Love In a Mist From Seeds

OUTDOORS:

  • Sow in spring 2-4 weeks before average last day of frost.

  • For continual bloom, sow every 4 weeks after initial sowing until mid-summer. To sow, simply scatter the seed and rake it in. 

  • You don't really need to cover the seed with soil, but it does need to be pressed down slightly.

  • Seeds should germinate within 2-3 weeks under most conditions. 

  • Cannot be covered more than 1/8 ". Or just scatter seed on top of soil and press down lightly.

  • Begin sowing as soon as the soil can be worked in early spring. 

  • Love-in-a-mist tolerates frost, so is primarily a spring and fall annual; it does not perform well in hot weather.

  • Nigella does not like being transplanted and does best if direct seeded outdoors. Seed can be sown from early spring, throughout the summer and even in fall, in climates with mild winters. Indoor sowing is not recommended.

  • Nigella is a short lived plant and probably won't make through an entire growing season. For a continuous bloom, repeat sow every 4 weeks. Once your plants have begun to scatter seed, you won't need to continue sowing
