A fascinating mix of dark, intricately-shaped flowers
A fascinating mix of dark, intricately-shaped flowers inspired by Medieval European art and architecture. Grow your very own Gothic cathedral with blood-red Celosia's ribbed vaults and the delicate stained-glass petals of Scabiosa; your hard work will attract a devout following of butterflies and bees. And don't forget to add a garden gargoyle for good measure.

Shallowly sow seeds indoors in individual pots, 1-2 per cell. For best results, start in late winter, 6-8 weeks before last frost. As the sprouts put on their first true leaves, you will be able to distinguish them from each other. Transplant outdoors after threat of frost is past, making sure to plant a good mix of seedlings for balanced bouquets. The tall plants may require some staking and support to remain upright and produce the best quality flowers. If started in winter for spring transplant, the full mix will bloom within the first year; any later and Dianthus 'Sooty' will bloom in the following year, with the rest of the mix blooming in year one.
