Harvest when 80 percent of the flowers on a stem are open. Flowers cut too early (50% open) do not take up water and tend to wilt. Theflowers should be a crisp no hint of pollen shed. Once pollen sheds,flowers decline rapidly. Some growers cut the initial center flower with only a 15-30 cm (6-12") stem length, allowing the secondary flowers to bloom on 50-60 cm (20-24") stems.
***Note Harvesting of Ammi majus requires the use of gloves and protective clothing. The sap of the cut stems may result in severe contact dermatitis in sensitive individuals. Serious cases may cause permanent scars.***
Beginning Nov 1, we have paused taking new orders until our new 2021 inventory goes live on Monday December 7th at 12 noon ET.
We have heard and continue to read on social media sites, some concerns about seed availability in the North American context. We can report that this appears to be just speculation and hype. Yes, volume of seed buying is up, but there doesn't seem to be evidence to support these concerns.
We thank you for all your support this year and look forward to growing with you again next season.
We look ahead excitedly to December and invite you to embrace our Wishlist feature which allows you to "browse" our seed catalogue and build an order that you can move to a cart with the click of one button.
We are working on orders placed before our pause date first and those orders will finish shipping shortly.
