How to Grow Ammi from Seed

Ammi Majus is among the best white filler-foliage plants available, highly fashionable for cutting, lacy, elegant and simply splendid arranged in a great cloud on its own. Ammi is easy for beginners and perfect for attracting bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects.

Ammi majus seed can be sown from March to May or from late August to September.

Seeds can be sown in deep pots or growing cell trays indoors, Ammi Majus has a long taproot which is sensitive to disturbance and can be damaged when transplanting so care must be taken.

Sow 6 to 8 weeks before planting out. When first true leaves appear, transplant into larger containers. Harden off and transplant out after last frost.

Alternatively seeds can be sown where they are to flower once temperatures are around 15 to 20°C or 59 to 68°F. Surface sow, thinly in drills spaced around 12 inches apart, covering the seed to no more than 1mm deep and keep moist. Germination normally occurs within 7 to 21 days.

When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 20 to 30cm or 8 to 12 inches apart and provide support in exposed areas.
