    HELP – I am too late for an autumn sowing of ammi and other annuals that generally benefit from an autumn sowing?

      You are right on the cusp! Some will come good…many wont…I’d say give it a go and see what happens…seeds are so cheep. Unless you are in Scotland…then forget it.

    Help please! Do I sow Ammi Majus directly into the soil in the autumn or under glass? Confused!

      Hi, I sow ammi direct. I no longer ever sow it in pots. I shall be sowing some soon for my autumn sowing but not today…I don’t like working in the rain! :)

    Please can someone tell me if Ammi Majus will self seed and come back yearly. If not, how do I collect the seed please?

      yes indeed it will…but weed carefully around the young seedlings as they are very delicate. :)

    Hello Ben
    I have discovered your blog via JW Blooms. 2010 has been my first year of growing flowers ( including Ammi) for cutting. I am looking forward to reading more of your articles.

      Lovely to hear from you Gill…are you growing commercially or just for yourself?
      I hope you enjoy the site and make yourself at home here! ;)

        Hi Ben

        I am growing cut flowers for me. My first year has been far better than I anticipated, I can’t wait for spring.

        Kind regards
