    Dainty white flowerheads that look like lacework are born in summer and seem to hover in a frothy haze above the finely cut, green foliage. The flowers are often used by florists to add a ethereal, romantic feel to bouquets, and they can last up to 10 days after being cut. This annual also looks a delight in the garden, and has quite an architectural feel. Once the flowers have faded and the seeds have ripened, they will attract finches to the garden. Stake plants as they start to shoot upwards with twiggy hazel stems for support.

    Grown in individual plug cells, each plant measures about 5 - 7 cm tall (from the base of the root to the top of the plant). They can be grown on or planted straight out into the garden.

    Please note that as we grow these for especially for you, we need to take full payment when you place your order so as to reserve stock for you. See above for despatch dates for this particular plant. To ensure that your plants arrive in the best possible condition each pack will be despatched individually.

    Comments about Ammi majus:

    We planted the ammis en mass and they were glorious, among dark leaved dahlias. They require a bit of care and staking but well worth the effort. They flowered for several months and attracted many compliments. Reached 2m height.

    Comments about Ammi majus:

    Plants never really got going, and then needed staking, even though the stems were quite flimsy on most of them Though did seed around profusely, so I've potted lots up, and replanted seedlings for, hopefully, a more robust show in 2017

      Comments about Ammi majus:

      Bought as plug plants so needed to be potted on immediately, and again during the hardening off period. A pleasant task.
      Fast growing in empty new flower beds and flowered before the cosmos which had had the same treatment.
      Lots of self-seedlings in the garden now, easily identifiable, and I look forward to more flowers in 2017. I could extend the flowering season by sowing seed directly in the spring.
      Do not thrive in partial shade.

      Had to grow on in a pot in the cold frame for a while before planting out - due to the size on delivery. But has grown on to be a strong plant and looks great.

            Plant as plugs at the beginning of the season and very quickly you have a hazy billowing cloud of white that lasts well into high summer. V good for softening borders.

                As far as I know it doesn't self seed, although it is really easy to grow by collecting the seeds and sowing yourself in the spring.

            Plant up summer containers

            After the last frost date, plant up containers with tender flowering bedding and reliable foliage plants. Line terracotta pots with polythene, taking care not to cover the planting holes, to reduce water loss through the porous sides of the pot.
