Ammi majus (Bishop's Flower) seeds
Very pretty, architectural annual with masses of elegant, lacy, snow white flower heads from June to August. Very reminiscent of our native wildflower Cow Parsley but much prettier and better behaved!
Perfect for filling gaps in summer borders and providing contrast in both form and height. Lovely for cut flower and bouquets with the added bonus of attracting bees & butterflies. Can be sown directly outdoors in flowering position. Drought resistant.

When to Sow: Sow February to May outdoors in flowering position. Can also be sown outdoors in September for more robust plants and early flowers the following year.
Sowing: Sow directly into well raked, moist soil and cover lightly with a very fine sprinkling of sieved soil. If sowing in rows, leave 30cm between rows. Germination takes 7 to 21 days.
Growing: When the seedlings are large enough to handle, thin to 25cm apart. Once the plants start to flower, deadhead or cut the flowers regularly to encourage more flowering.
