What's a cockscomb?


Celosia

This exciting annual comes in a variety of hot flame colours such as red, orange and yellow. We're using bright pink ones! It's also known as cockscomb which kind of makes sense. This posy includes mum's Mexican sunflowers for the first time. This bright orange plant grows as a weed in Mexico and is used  by local farmers to make an affordable natural liquid fertiliser that improve nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium levels in soils.

What's in the posy?

Zinnia, Mexican sunflower, eryngium, ivy, rosemary, rosehip, celosia, lisianthus, cupressus, limonium, marigold.

What's fragrant?

Marigold and rosemary.
