PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Nigella damascena 'Miss Jekyll'
Love-in-a-Mist
Type/Hardiness Annual, Hardy
Flowering period June-September
Height 12-18in/30-45cm
Light preference Sun/part shade
Soil preference
Sowing time/depth Mar-Apr or Aug-Sept, 0.1in/3mm
Everything about this cottage garden favourite is spectacular, from the buds, through flowers to seed pods. The finely cut, bright-green foliage is bedecked with rich cornflower-blue flowers throughout the summer, which develop into seedpods, often tinged red and like spurred balloons. These are a lovely addition to dried flower arrangements.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Best direct sown outside in autumn or spring, alternatively under glass in Spring at 70F, preferably in modules, as Nigella does not, in my experience, like disturbance.
