Scabiosa 'Rose' & Ammi majus Seeds

Ammi majus is brilliant for cut flowers. With lacy white flower heads and dark green feathery foliage Ammi adds a light touch to bouquets lending a just picked country feel. It’s good for adding height to borders, for cut flower production and attracts pollinating insects too. In fact it's such a great plant that the RHS have awarded it the AGM (Award of Garden Merit).

Scabiosa atropurpurea 'Rose' has glamorous Rose pink flowers followed by amazing seed heads.
It is easy to grow and produces masses of flowers for cutting. The more you cut the more you get.

Sow both plants in spring for summer flowers then sow again in late summer or early autumn for larger stronger plants and more flowers early next year.
