Add native British bee plants to your garden with our Corn Marigold seeds.
Corn Marigold (Chrysanthemum segetum) is originally thought to have been introduced into Britain during Neolithic times, but after 8 thousand years we certainly can claim it as our own!
During the 13th Century, Scottish farmers were fined a sheep for finding one plant in their corn because it can become a serious weed. However, don’t let that put you off. This is a gorgeous brightly yellow coloured annual that thrives in disturbed ground.
Just remember that wildflowers grown in your garden should be treated as normal bedding plants but they are just a little hardier. The corn marigold is an amazing plant for the Chalk Hill Blue butterfly.
The Corn Marigold will flower from June to September adding colour and bees to your garden. Full care instructions can be found on the reverse of the packet.
There are approximately 300 seeds in the packet which are from cultivated stock. Please do not scatter any of the seeds into the countryside.
