Nigella ‘Miss Jekyll’
Nigella ‘Miss Jekyll’ is a very easy annual to sow this month ready for cut flowers next year. It also makes a good filler in the herbaceous border and is especially useful for hiding the lower stems of roses. It requires some sun, but copes with morning sun only, and it dislikes being in damp ground.
These are its papery seed heads containing the tiny black seeds. Scatter them directly onto weed-free bare earth and press down, there’s no need to cover with soil. Alternatively save the seeds in a paper bag for sowing next Spring.
