Organic Nigella

Easy to grow and utterly etheric, nigella’s exquisite fern-like foliage and extraordinary flowers are captivating in bouquets as well as their breath-taking seed pods. Nigella is short, often under 2 feet, thriving in gardens as well as raised beds and containers, even with partial sun. Some varieties are ornamental, like Persian Jewels, while others are also delectable spices, like black cumin, or kalonji. At Fruition, we sow organic nigella seeds in soil blocks indoors 4 weeks before final frost to transplant after final frost with one foot between plants.
