An heirloom favorite popular in both fresh and dried bouquets, Bells of Ireland produces tall flower stems tightly packed with green, bell-shaped bracts. It prefers cool weather; sow outdoors in early spring for early summer bloom. Don't cover seed as light aids in germination -- just press the seed onto the soil surface for good seed-to-soil contact.
