Productinformation

Cornflower or bachelor’s buttons (Centaurea cyanus) are classic and fantastic flowers with shades ranging from blue to white.
This cornflower is a mix of the most amazing shades of deep blue, combined with white flowers. The flowers vary from almost completely blue to white with only a blue center. Due to this variation, this flower is very versatile and can be easily used in your homegrown bouquets. The flowers bloom on long stems, reaching up to 90 cm tall. This plant is a true cut and come again variety, meaning the more you pick, the more flowers the plants will produce. When grown as a border plant, deadheading the flowers will prolong flowering. The soil must not be too rich, as fertilizer may cause the plants to grow more leaves than flowers.

Tips for Growing Cornflower or Bachelor’s Buttons from Seed:

Cornflower Classic Magic is an easy-to-grow plant and can be directly sown from April till mid-June. For early flowers, this plant can be sown in the greenhouse in autumn or early spring because it is very cold-tolerant. If you would like to grow cornflowers as cut flowers, you can extend your harvesting window by sowing them twice: once in autumn or early spring, and once through direct sowing in early May. Plants can be sown in trays, pick a 4 to 6 cm cell (40 low, 28 low) and pot on or plant out when the roots have filled the cell.

Harvesting Flowers:
To get the longest vase life, harvest individual flowers when buds are about halfway open. If you prefer to use larger branches, cut stems when most of the buds are colored. This way, you can enjoy the flowers at home for up to 7 days.
