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).

Cenolophium denudatum
Baltic parsley
Gorgeous!
Type/Hardiness Herbaceous, Perennial, Hardy
Flowering period Summer
Height 18-36in/0.5-1m
Light preference Full sun/part shade
Soil preference Any, but well drained
Sowing time/depth Pref. early Autumn, but also Spring, barely cover
Although somewhat similar to cow parsley (but bushier), both flowers and foliage of this attractive hardy perennial are more refined. A very useful filler plant for flower arrangers. There is a similar annual plant, Ammi majus, that is perhaps easier for direct sowing, but is rather coarser in nature - I prefer this one!
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow indoors (but do not provide artificial heat, which can inhibit germination) onto the surface of small, individual pots or modules filled with good quality, moist but not waterlogged compost, covering with a sprinkling of sieved compost or fine vermiculite. After 3 weeks place the sown seeds, sealed in a plastic bag, into a fridge for 8 weeks, then return to warm conditions for germination, which, particularly of spring-sown seeds, can be erratic, taking up to a year. Thin to one seedling and plant out when large enough and after all danger of frost has passed. Alternatively, direct sow, preferably in early autumn while there is still some warmth in the soil, gently raking the soil so that the seed is just covered. Cold winter conditions followed by spring warmth will encourage germination.
