Cut Flower Agrostemma/Corncockle Seedling Pack

Sale price$35.00
Agrostemma/Corncockle:

Agrostemma githago

Cut flower Agrostemma seedlings, grown by Gray Floral NZ and shipping NZ wide.

Agrostemma is one of the plants that is most often commented on whenever I have it bunches or when visitors see the garden. It is tall and wispy, but deceivingly sturdy and it gives the most gorgeous movement to both bouquets and the garden. 

The Ocean Pearls is the first we grew, and it has perfect crisp white blooms with dainty gold fleck. The Light Rose is a new addition to the seed family and is the most perfect shade of palest pink. 

A slender growing plant, you can pack them fairly tightly if growing for cuts - between 15-20cm. It grows well in the back to middle of the border, slotted into small gaps between perennials and roses, and is at its glorious best when planted in drifts. 

A happy but not overly enthusiastic self sower, it will replace itself if you leave it to set seed. 

A hardy annual, Corncockle can be planted from autumn throughout winter for spring flowering, but I have found it still produces lovely stems almost year round. 

Pack of 6 plants - Please select colour option

Harvest: If harvesting individual flowers, pick when the petals are coloured and visible but not fully open. To harvest sprays, you can pick when either the main flower is at the stage described, or if you miss that one, just snip the spent flower head out and harvest the rest of the spray when the next flower has coloured but not opened. 

Vase life: 5-7 days

All our seedlings are grown in a custom cut flower mix which contains Trichoderma to assist in healthy root development and resistance to root pathogens. To give your seedlings the best start in your garden we recommend soaking them in a weak seaweed feed (or one of our "Seedling Shots") before planting. 

We are proud to be partnering with Sustaina Grow to package our seedlings in a wool wrap that maintains moisture and protects the seedlings in transit. On arrival, take your plants out of the box and give them a good drink of water - you can leave them wrapped in the wool to do this! When you're ready to plant or pot on you can unwrap the seedlings, but they will happily spend a couple of days in their wool blanket before planting.

This wool liner makes a wonderful mulch mat that can be used with your seedlings or around any plant in your garden. Everything apart from labels (which we hope you'll use in the garden and time and time again) and stickers are compostable, in an effort to keep our shipping sustainable for the environment.
