Buy Ammi majus 40 plus 20 FREE plug plants: A billowing, architectural cow parsley

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: hardy annual

    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. Ammis 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 - 7cm tall (from the base of the root to the top of the plant). They are ideal for keen gardeners who have a greenhouse where the plants can be grown on until they are ready for planting out in the garden once all chance of frost has passed.

    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.

I would buy it again


Ammi Majus looks great with Cosmos Purity. It is a great cut flower and looks very pretty in the garden orin the vase.

This plant was a highlight of the boarders will buy again

I would not buy this plant again - my error,


I had in mind a plant similar to cow parsley. Although this plant had likenesses it was too flimsy and 'all over the place. I sadly decided to take most of it out and put it down to 'gardener's mistake'.

Yes, up here in Scotland, they need potting on, but what glorious results! A hazy, billowing mass of frothy white flowers, supported by a framework of old branches. And 60 plants cover a lot of ground!

Majestic ammis


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.






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




A very useful and attractive filler for the informal garden.


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.

Stunning and effective


I scatter these all through my beds and they have become an essential component of my country garden.

Will this need staking?


Hello there It depends really where you are growing it, but yes it might need support. Hope this helps

Quick question? Will the ammi majus plug plants self seed? Thanks.


Hello there 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. Hope this helps

If you do nothing else...water new plants. Make sure new additions do not suffer during dry spells. Plant up summer containers bedding once the threat of frosts has passed. Feed container plants about six weeks after planting. If it’s a nice day...trim he

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.

Everyone's in love with frothy planting these days, light and airy concoctions that seem to float through the border like a soft summer breeze. Many of these gauzy beauties are umbellifers, members of the cow parsley tribe. They are blessed with tiny flo
