Cornflower ‘Doppio Multicolour’ – Centaurea cyanus A member of the Asteraceae family and native of Europe, the cornflower is so named as it used to grow as a weed in cornfields. Although less prevalent nowadays, cornflowers are still found around the edges of fields as well as on roadsides and in hedgerows. The intensely blue flowers are perfect for borders and can be used to great decorative effect. Rich in pollen and nectar, cornflowers are bee-friendly too, so great for attracting bees to your garden. The edible flowers taste a bit like cloves, slightly sweet yet spicy.

Sowing

Annual: sow in early to mid-spring.

For best results, sow seeds sparingly in shallow rows 1cm deep in well prepared, moist soil. Cover with soil and water during dry periods.

As seedlings grow, when large enough to handle, gradually thin out until 20cm apart.
