Description

Blue flowers and the plumpest, prettiest, green and crimson seed heads.

Nigellas are the classic cottage garden annual which makes fabulous cut flowers and filler foliage for any vase. They dry brilliantly too.

Care Tips

Keep picking but leave a few flowers to form seed pods for mixing with later flowers.
