Cornflowers really are a beautiful flower to look at. They are good value too, because they will keep on flowering for several months often until December.
They are a native Irish plant, and they were often found growing wild in waste ground and in cornfields in the past, hence the name.
Once established in a bed, cornflowers will self-seed and return year after year. You just need to lightly rake or root around the plot every spring to help the fallen seeds to germinate.
Mix cornflower seeds in with poppies and you will have a great display of colour all summer, as well as attracting many bees and
beneficial insects to your garden.
Seeds need a fine and fluffy seedbed. It does not need to be deep at all – 0.50cm deep is perfect. Roll or lightly rake in afterwards. Scattering them on uncultivated soil is not recommended.
