Cornflowers vary in size, depending on the variety. Shorter types are best in the front of the border, while taller varieties are best mid-garden. Plants tend to grow upright, rather than spread, yet the more blossoms are cut, the more buds they will produce and the plants will get bushy and full. Cornflowers are generally tolerant of drought conditions, yet thrive when watered frequently.
Step by Step How to Grow Cornflowers From Seeds!
# 1 | Sow seeds from March to May outdoors for flowers from June to September, or sow during August and September to flower slightly earlier the following year.
#2 | Sow seeds thinly in finely raked, moist soil where you want the plants to flower, at a depth of 13mm (½in) covering the seeds lightly with soil. Water the soil during dry periods.
#3 | Your coneflowers should germinate in 7-10 days.
