Nigella (Love-in-a-Mist) Seeds

Nigella is a self-sowing annual that blooms in June and July. It's very easy to grow by direct sowing. Some species have edible seeds.

Sow nigella seeds outdoors in early spring or fall. Sow on the surface or barely cover the seeds with soil. Thin to 6" apart. Full sun.

Nigella damascena 'Miss Jekyll Blue' makes a terrific filler in the garden, and it reseeds prolifically. It's a lovely companion plant for Asiatic lilies and roses.

The pure blue color goes with everything, and the ornamental seed pods can be used in dried flower arrangements. The fragrant, black seeds are edible. I think they smell like spicy grapes. Also known as Love-in-a-Mist.
