Corn Cockle-agrostemma githago– is an annual wildflower that used to grow in cornfields, but sadly, has been affected by modern herbicides and is now more or less extinct in the wild. Fortunately seed is readily available, so it can still be introduced into annual wildflower meadows and works best when grown with other cornfield plants. Corncockles should be sown onto well drained fertile soils where there is plenty of sunlight. Plants produce pretty pink flowers that appear from June to August and attract bees. Corn Cockles looks best growing with other annual wildflowers such as Corn Chamomile, Corn Buttercups, Corn Marigolds, Wild Pansies, Cornflowers and Poppies.

How to grow Corn Cockle Seeds
Corn Cockle seeds should be sown in spring, directly outside, where they are to flower and covered lightly with soil. It is important to note that seeds do not normally establish well in existing grass. Instead they should be sown onto carefully prepared, weed-free soil, where they will usually germinate.readily.
