Cornflower Classic Fantastic this is an impressive mix of single and semi double blooms in the most gorgeous range of blues. From a memorable pale blue through to dark blue and even a white thrown in as well, all with darker contrasting centres. The flowers are borne on long stems making them ideal for use as cut flowers. Can be grown with poppies and daisies for the full cottage garden experience. Flowers are a favourite with butterflies and bees from June to August.

This hardy annual grows to a height of 100cm and will spread to 30 cm.

Sow Calendula Daisy Mix outdoors from March to April, prepare the site in advance by removing any weeds, break up the soil to create a crumbly soil, raking over the surface to produce a fine seedbed, sow thinly in 3mm deep drills spaced approx 30cm apart, thin out to 15cm apart when large enough to handle.

Average packet contents 200 seeds.
