Because the plant is tall it needs to be grown up by a wall or fence or in a mixture of other annuals. It does particularly well in a mix of Field Poppy, Cornflower, Corn Marigold and Corn Chamomile. #companionplanting

Sow in the soil where you want it to grow and cover very lightly. Sow in August -September for flowers in June. Sow in early Spring, March-April, for flowers in July to August

*I make two sowings…one in Spring and one in Autumn. This will give you a longer season. Having plants in the cutting patch over the winter means their roots will be growing like Billio despite nothing really happening on top. Come spring time they will rocket up Also having a little greenery in the patch in December makes me feel rather smug.

The genus name Agrostemma is from the Greek agros meaning 'field' and stemma meaning 'crown or garland'. The flowers used to be woven into harvest festival wreaths. http://www.seedaholic.com/agrostemma-githago-corncockle-wildflower-1687.html
