    Ever since a flowering carrot was used by Cleve West in in his 2011 garden at the Chelsea Flower Show, these plants have taken on a whole new role in ornamental gardens. This one then is a purely decorative form that is grown for its airy umbels of pink and burgundy flowers, which create a haze of colour throughout the summer months. The feathery foliage of this hardy annual is attractive too.

  • Growing Instructions:Sow the seeds thinly into a well prepared bed directly where you want them to grow, and cover lightly with soil. Early sowings can be covered with cloches and germination should take between 10 and 20 days. When large enough to handle, thin the seedlings carefully to 10cm apart, watering beforehand to avoid disturbing nearby roots.

  • Sow:August to September or February to April

  • Flowering: June to September

  • Approximate quantity: 50 seeds.
