Chicory (Cichorium intybus) and Corn Cockle (Agrostemma githago) in the past but not for some years so I’m going to again this year. Both are lovely wild wild flowers, which as well as being attractive to pollinators are also good for cutting.
Chicory grows to around 4ft/1.2m and has lovely clear blue flowers in the summer.
I’ll be growing the white variety Ocean Pearl of the Corn Cockle, which is shorter and has silky flowers with some dark speckling.
I’ll be sowing the seeds in the spring, direct around the log pile and pond area.
I’ve not been to the plot since Saturday as it’s been mostly damp and dull, but I’m hoping to have a look round tomorrow.
Take care, and have a good weekend!
