Nigella damascena is a lovely old cottage garden flower, a favourite for scattering wherever there's a gap in the flower border.
Nigella damascena 'Miss Jekyll' bears masses of sky-blue flowers on upright stems, in contrast with ferny foliage, for up to eight weeks. Both the flowers and foliage are useful in flower arranging, and its seedheads work well in dried flower arrangements.
For best results grow Nigella damascena 'Miss Jekyll' in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. Plants will self-seed readily. In windy gardens, support the stems with twiggy sticks.

very nice, i have been wondering when to sow these little beasties thanx
I have grown this for the first time and would like to keep the seeds and try again with them. Do I have to wait for the seed heads to dry and turn brown or is it ok to cut them off and dry them indoors? I would like to use the space for something else. Advice please.
