Planting and Growing Tips:
Cornflowers are not fussy and will tolerate most growing conditions providing they receive plenty of sun. Easy to grow, just broadcast and gently rake or tamp to a depth of 1/8 inch deep — barely cover! Cuttings will last a long time in flower arrangements.
For a spectacular effect, plant in combination with red poppies and snapdragons, or mix with day lilies in a border.
