Corncockle – 50 Seeds
Corncockle with its straight stems, purplish-pink flowers and silvery-grey foliage used to be a common sight in the wheat fields and along the roadsides. It must have been an idyllic, heartwarming sight to see. This is a happy easy to grow cut flower and a new favourite of ours. If you keep cutting the flowers, it will keep producing more. Grow it once and you’ll be hooked!
Sow the seeds directly into the soil in September or April. Grow them close together and through some netting for support.
