Description Sowing More Info Delivery

Thompson & Morgan is delighted to work alongside the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew to offer special seed collections to home gardeners. This Kew Pollinators Collection has been specially selected by The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

Ammi majus is reminiscent of Cow Parsley which softens the verges of country lanes. This tall annual produces a froth of delicate white blooms that bring a simple, elegant feel to summer borders. Commonly known as Bishops Weed, its graceful stems rise above ferny foliage, lending themselves nicely to summer bouquets.

This airy annual associates beautifully with tall grasses and summer perennials, mingling happily to soften planting schemes and create a hazy, romantic appearance. Its blooms are loved by pollinating insects, and the autumn seed heads attract Finches to the garden. Height: 140cm (55"). Spread: 50cm (20").

Reasons to buy your seeds from Thompson & Morgan


1 Packet (100 Seeds) (KB7557)

Direct sow ammi majus seeds outdoors where they are to grow from April to June in full sun or semi shade, on fertile, well drained soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Sow seeds thinly, at a depth of 1.5mm (1/16") in drills spaced 30cm (12") apart. Water the ground regularly, especially during dry periods. Germination usually takes 7-21 days. When ammi seedlings are large enough to handle, thin them out to 25cm (10") apart.
Water regularly until plants become fully established. Ammi stems will require staking. Place twiggy sticks among the seedlings while they are 10cm (4") high and allow ammi plants to grow through them for support.
