Nigella damascena. aka Love-in-a-Mist, it is best direct-sown in the garden, although it may be started indoors 6 to 8 weeks before transplanting outside after the danger of hard frost has passed. Prepare a bed with rich, well-draining soil in a sunny spot. Sow seeds on top of the soil, leaving the seeds barely covered but pressed firmly onto the soil surface, as light aids germination. Use individual peat pots or seed-starting cells to avoid root disturbances. Provide even moisture and strong light during germination. Harden off the seedlings by gradually acclimating them to outside conditions for 1 to 2 weeks before transplanting or potting outside. Once the plants are 2" tall, thin them to 10" apart. If transplanting, be gentle! A prolific annual, rose, white, indigo and sky-blue Nigella self-sows readily. Summer flowering. Height: 12" to 24".
