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).
|Fennel Flower, Nutmeg Flower, Roman Coriander, False Black Cumin, Black Seed|
|Similar in many respects to the more familiar Nigella damascena (Love in a Mist), but the flowers are smaller and usually white, occasionally pale blue, on delicate stems clothed in very finely divided foliage. In Asian countries the seeds are traditionally used in rice dishes and confectionery. They are also reputed to have medicinal properties and are used as a herbal remedy for treating conditions including indigestion, water retention and fever.
NOTE: Externally sourced, organic seed.
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Direct sow in late winter/early spring (some cold is required to aid germination). Ensure that seed is well covered as light inhibits germination, which should occur within two weeks.|
