Growing my own dried flowers – Nigella seed heads

Nigella growing in my garden is gorgeous – their seed heads will make lovely dried flowers too

The nigella (Love-in-a-mist) is another flower in my garden that grows without me having to plant it. My flowers come in a range of blues from indigo to sky. The formation of the flowers looks so exotic, you wouldn’t believe they grow almost like a weed!

Like the poppy seed heads I mentioned in my last post, I love the way the nigella seed head is clearly visible growing in the centre of the flower.

Turning nigella seed heads into dried flowers

Like the poppy seed heads mentioned previously, I have tied a small bunch of nigella together with a rubber band and hung it up to dry in my kitchen. I can’t resist free dried flowers! They will be ready in 2 or 3 weeks.
