Corn Cockle Seeds

Corn Cockle (Agrostemma githago) is a beautiful annual wildflower that once thrived in cornfields across the UK and EU. However, due to the use of modern herbicides, it is now more or less extinct in the wild. Fortunately, seed is readily available, so you can still introduce Corn Cockles into your own garden or wildflower meadow.

Corn Cockles produce pretty pink flowers that appear from June to August and attract bees. They look best grown with other annual wildflowers such as Corn Chamomile, Corn Buttercups, Corn Marigolds, Wild Pansies, Cornflowers, and Poppies.

How to grow Agrostemma Githago Seeds

Corn Cockle seeds should be sown in spring, directly outside, where they are to flower. Cover the seeds lightly with soil. It is important to note that seeds do not normally establish well in existing grass. Instead, they should be sown on carefully prepared, weed-free soil. Corn cockle seeds usually germinate readily.
