Love In A Mist Fractilous Style

Artist's Description

All my wildflower have started to go over now but the garden is taking on a different look again. In my ‘Wild’ corner these little beauties are starting to flower – this is the first to flower and is very small.
I received a Bubblemail asking why I hadnt done any Fractilous flowers lately – so thought I had better do one!
Nigella or the common name Love in a Mist is an old cottage garden flower, a favourite for scattering wherever there is a gap in the flower border, but also good for short-term massed bedding and for drying. For many years ‘Miss Jekyll’ was the only widely available variety, and it is still popular for its dependable masses of sky-blue flowers. These last for about eight weeks, and it is worth deadheading or sowing a later batch to extend the season. Sowing in autumn or in March, in a cold frame in paper pots in cold districts, produces early flowers. In windy gardens, support the stems with twiggy sticks.
