It is an attractive, hardy biennial plant, often best grown as an annual, reaching up to 50cm in height with large white flower heads. It should be directly sown at a depth of 1cm, or transplanted (20x20cm) in spring to early summer in well drained fertile soil in dappled shade rather than direct sun. Easy to grow and can be picked in 70 days or so. Self seeds freely.
