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).
|Anthriscus sylvestris 'Ravenswing'|
|Black-leaved Cow Parsley|
|The finely divided, ferny, deep-purple, almost black leaves of this unusual plant make a lovely contrast with other plants, particularly those that have predominantly light-green foliage. The flat heads of tiny flowers are white with small pink bracts. Please note that not all plants produced from the seeds offered will come true - see instructions below.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Sow thinly in modules, carefully potting on when the seedlings are large enough to handle. Autumn-sown seed may bide its time until the spring before germinating, but may benefit from the cold during the winter. The colour of the foliage can be variable - not all deep black. The true colour of the plants may sometimes take a little while to develop, so it is probably a good idea to grow the seedlings on for a little while before disposing of those that do not seem likely to live up to their potential. Some of the middling colours (reddish-green) are attractive in their own right.|
