Beautiful British native annual wildflower and an essential element of the traditional British cornfield.  From June to September, the pretty, daisy-like, white flowers with striking yellow centres, wave in the breeze over delicate, fern-like foliage.  The nectar rich flowers are great for attracting bees, butterflies, moths and other beneficial, pollinating insects. 

Loves the sun and very useful as a summer bedding plant where it will quickly spread to fill any gaps in borders.  Easy to grow.

GROWING GUIDE

When to Sow: Sow spring or autumn outdoors in flowering position.

Sowing: Clear all weeds, scatter seeds on well raked soil, firm seeds into the soil and water with a fine spray.  If sowing in rows, leave 20cm between rows. Germination varies with the time of year and conditions, but generally takes from 7-30 days.

Growing:   Thin seedlings as necessary as they grow.  To prolong flowering and prevent self seeding, remove the seedheads just as the petals start to fall.  Otherwise, when flowering has finished in autumn, remove the dead plants, shake well to scatter the seed and rake the area lightly. New plants will grow in the spring.
