Cornflower Red Boy Seeds
Info: The cornflower Centaurea Red Boy blooms with many double flowers in crimson on stems up to 1 m long. This makes it ideal for summer bouquets. The flowers of the cornflower are edible and give salads and tea blends a nice spot of colour.
Sowing & care: Sowing takes place directly outdoors between March and July. After distribution, cover the seeds thinly with soil and keep them moist. If you sow every 4 weeks, the flowering time will be extended. Cornflowers like a sunny location and a permeable, nutrient-poor soil.
