This has to be one of the most useful and beautiful cut flowers ever!
Dreamy, domes of elegant white petals bring a relaxed meadow vibe to any display. A cloud of delicate, lacy umbellifers….great mixed with almost any other flower, add these to a vase and immediately you get a country cottage feel and can breathe easily again.
Ammi is a hardy annual and so can be sown either in late Aug/early Sept or in April/May once the soil has warmed up a bit.
An autumn sowing will give you much larger, taller plants (they can grow up to 1.2m) than those sown in spring but really this is such a versatile flower that I do both and extend my flower season.
Ammi has a long taproot that can be easily damaged when transplanting from pot to garden, so many people will advise you to only sow directly where they are to grow.
I have to say I haven’t ever found transplanting them a problem although I do take great care….so yet again I hedge my bets and sow directly both in autumn and spring, plus I sow some in trays to overwinter in the polytunnel.
Rake the soil to a fine tilth and moisten the soil before you sow and only cover the seeds very lightly. These seeds are incredibly tiny and can wash away easily if you blast them with water after sowing.
Keep moist, they will not be happy if you let them dry out. They like full sun and well-drained soil.
I would advise growing through netting for support.
Grow these…that’s all you need to know!

Thank you so much for the Ammi Majus seeds. I sent them to my mother in Australia, (with a full customs declaration) but was not very hopeful that she would receive them as Australia’s custom rules are very strict. They arrived safely, and my mother has already sown them and they have germinated! She is really looking forward to seeing them grow in her garden.

Let customers speak for us
From the moment the cute seed box arrives at your door, until the seedling pop up to say hello...they never disappoint. I've purchased a few different boxes of seeds and know they'll not be my last! Thank you 🐞🌸
I already have baby craspedia seedlings and can't wait to see them grow. I bought a couple of craspedia plants last year and they produce the most lovely yellow pom poms. They look great dotted in three's around the house and I also use them when I make dried wreaths.
This was gifted to my mum for her birthday and she loves it. You've got everything you need for flower pressing, including all instructions.
Nicely packaged and fast delivery
One of our favourites in the range. Balanced subtle tones, good burn time and will definitely buy again. Matt

Looking forward to sowing these seeds soon.
Top quality seeds and so beautifully presented - I bought them for myself but it was like receiving a gorgeous gift!
Great service, prompt delivery and beautifully packaged. It was for a gift so not tried them but they look lovely.
I am happy to give a 5 star review for Bishy Barnabee’s Cottage Garden Flower and Herb Box.
I loved receiving the beautiful package of seeds, with some dried flowers enclosed and not an ounce of plastic in sight!
All thoughtfully eco friendly wrapped.
The delivery was super quick and I’m working my way through sewing the seeds, on the monthly instructions contained on each packet.
I think any of the seed boxes would make a beautiful gift or why not treat yourself!
I’ll certainly be buying more as I expand my cut flower garden 🌸🐞
Another beautifully presented gift box of seeds delivered quickly and professionally presented. I bought as a gift for a friend who was delighted. I will definitely be back again.
I was so pleased to receive this box of seeds, beautifully presented with a lovely little dried flower to add a special touch, thank you, can’t wait to get started on sowing them .
I can’t rate these seeds highly enough! Germination was super fast and baby plants are lovely and strong. Looking forward to a flower filled 2023 , and will definitely be ordering lots more goodies from Bbcg x
