This hardy annual features remarkable, delicate foliage and dazzling white blooms. Often referred to as Love in a Mist, Nigella is distinguished by its attractive flowers, leaves, and seed pods, which can be used in cut-flower arrangements. To cultivate in the spring for a summer flower, sow outdoors; to have blooms earlier the following year, sow outside in August-September, or indoors in October. This easy to grow flower is a great addition to any garden, providing distinctive colours and textures. It produces a minimal amount of pollen, so it is great for people with allergies, plus it is deer resistant.

Arrived promptly in nice packaging. I have bought quite a lot of seeds from Bishy Barnabee and I've been really pleased with the bounty of plants that I've already got ready for planting in the Spring.
Sowed the Dahlia Seeds last week - (in a suitable Pot on the Kitchen Window Sill - which serves as my greenhouse) the sturdy little Dahlia seeds were through in two days and are looking very healthy and happy! Obviously very fresh seeds in the packet.
