Cut flowers

I am planning more flowers for cutting this year, most of them will be grown from seed.

This is the list:
  • Nigella hispanica 'Curiosity'
  • Ammi majus 'Graceland' 
  • Lathyrus odoratus 'Jilly'
  • Lathyrus odoratus 'Nelly Viner'
  • Nicotiana alata 'Grandiflora'
  • Scabious 'Tall Mixed'
  • Cosmos bipinnatus 'Purity'
  • Salvia horminum 'Denim'
  • Consolida dark blue
  • Helichrysum monstrosum 'Summer Solstice'
  • Gaura lindheimeri 'The Bride'
The sweet peas (Lathyrus) have been planted. The Ammi, Scabious and Salvia have been hardened off but are a bit small to plant out. The Nicotiana is half-hardy so I am a bit reluctant to plant them while there are still frosts.

I have also bought some roses, plus some herbs for foliage.
  • Rosa 'White Gold'
  • Rosa 'English Miss'
  • Sage officinalis                  
  • Sage icterina
  • Dill   

 Scabious 'Tall Mixed' and Lathyrus 'Monty Don'
