Description

A wonderful array of beautiful coloured cornflowers, which can be just scattered into the garden to fill a sunny corner for weeks at a stretch.

No cottage garden is complete without its cornflowers – Loved by Pollinators and brilliant as cut flowers. We use lots of them for wedding and party flowers to make table runners and napkin rings, as they last brilliantly out of water.
