Like most folk I have limited growing space but also like to grow new varieties each year… but some old favourites return year after year. One of these is ‘Persian Jewels’. Really easy to grow and a subtle mix of purples, lavenders and mauves with the lovely trademark fern-like foliage that Nigella supports… gorgeous.
Be without this at your peril.
*Height 50 cm
*400ish seeds in a pack
*Sow March-May & September-October. Sow where they are to grow as they hate root disturbance and thin out seedlings to about 10 inches apart. I sow mine when the ground has warmed up in April..a latter on in May and a final on in September.
