The Cornflower is also known as the bachelor button, and it can be harvested in the summer or fall depending on when it is planted. Cornflower can reach 3 feet in height and attract birds and butterflies. Blooms can reach up to 1 inch wide.

Before Planting: Cornflower is not picky when it comes to soil conditions, but it does prefer a sunny location to grow. Prior to planting, loosen the soil in the garden and amend it with 4 inches of compost.

Planting: Plant the seeds one week before the last frost of the season. Plant them 1/4 inch deep and 1 inch apart.

Watering: Water the flowers 1 inch per week.

Fertilizer: Feed the Cornflower with an all-purpose fertilizer once a month.

Days to Maturity: Cornflowers begin flowering in early June and will continue to flower through August. Sometimes, they can even begin flowering in March if planted in a warmer climate.

Harvesting: Cornflowers make a great cut flower to bring inside and also work for dried flower arrangements since the flowers retain their color even after being dried.

Tips: Cornflowers are hardy, but they can be susceptible to mold and mildew if overwatered and not given enough space for good air circulation.
