Anthriscus Sylvestris - Ravenswing
This exciting recent discovery produces basal sprays of darkest mahogany-bronze, finely divided ferny foliage, making a perfect foil for the airy umbels of white heads. It makes a distinctive ferny-airy display at the back of a border.
Sow seeds immediately when you receive them, no matter what time of the year it is, as they depend on having several months in cold, damp compost, (not dry in a fridge) before they will germinate. Keep the seed tray in a greenhouse or shady corner. These fresh seeds can be slow to germinate but do not use any artificial heat in an attempt to germinate them as it will simply disrupt their germination mechanism causing them to enter deeper dormancy.
