Nigella damascena ‘Miss Jekyll’
Commonly called ‘Love in the mist’….
Blue is such a popular colour but quite rare in the flower kingdom, so Nigella damascena ‘Miss Jekyll’ in delicate pale blue is a welcome addition….
Lasting well out of water
For the home gardener these seeds can be direct sown making them an easy choice for the beginner… even into a pot for the patio gardener…. Highly recommended
I find it grows best from an early Autumn or very early Spring sowing. For more detailed growing instructions join our ‘Grow Along’ on Instagram
