Cornflowers (Centaurea cyanus) are old faithfuls in the cut flower garden, producing blue, white or pink flowers in spring and summer. They’re hardy annuals, so seeds can be sown now to grow on through winter. Sow directly in a sunny spot or sow in trays for transplanting later. Seeds are available from most seed suppliers.
This lovely bouquet comes from Ashley Fox Designs and includes white sweet peas, white freesias, light blue tweedia and electric blue cornflowers.
