Top Tips

Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering - Just like sweet peas, cornflowers need to be cut constantly if you want them to flower all summer.
Cut them just before they open fully – the centre of the flower should still be dipped inwards slightly.
Pair blue cornflowers with annuals opposite on the color wheel, like orange cosmos or yellow marigolds, to make both flowers stand out in the flower garden.
Expect more cornflowers in the same place the following year, as they self-seed freely.

Care Information

When planting out, dig the soil, don't add fertiliser as they flower better in poor soil.
Water well, especially through July and August.
If they flop over, plants can be staked - alternatively, you can grow them among other sturdy perennials that will act as natural supports for the stems.
