Nigella damascena

Oxford Blue Love-in-a-mist

Description

A traditional favourite with clear cornflower-blue blooms. Easy to grow.

Harvesting seed

Allow the seed pods to fully develop on the plant. The pods are capsules with chambers each containing many black seeds.

When openings appear on the top of the pod as it dries, cut off the pods with some stem attached and hang indoors in a paper bag for a few weeks. Periodically tap the bag to release seeds.

Winnow and sieve and then store in an airtight container.
