WHAT YOU NEED A packet of cornflower seeds Gardening gloves A rake A trowel Plant label and pencil RECYCLELOGO_ GEN_ HOW TO GROW Cornflowers can be sown straight into the ground where they are going to flower, so make sure the space you are going to sow is Document: weed free, by using a trowel to remove the weeds.

Rake the soil to a fine tilth (so it's a fine, crumbly soil) and make some drills 12mm deep. The rows should be spaced about 30cm apart.

Water the soil before sowing and allow the drill to drain if the soil is dry, sprinkle the seed in carefully and cover up with soil.

As they grow, if the plants are crowded, then thin them out to about 30cm apart.
