Black cumin is a lovely annual plant that produces white or sometimes light blue flowers in clouds of fluffy green leaves making the flowers appear to float in a foamy green sea.

Growing Instructions:
Start the Cumin seeds indoors 4 to 6 weeks before the last expected frost for transplanting outdoors. Or, after the last frost, directly plant the Black Cumin herb seeds outdoors. Sow in full sun to partial shade, 3-4 seeds per plant, 1/8" deep, 5-9" apart and keep moist until germination. Some gardeners sow the Nigella Sativa seeds in several successive weeks in order to keep a longer season. Black Cumin plants need a sunny location in the herb garden and well-drained soil. Water the herb plants regularly during prolonged periods of dry weather. After the seed heads begin to dry, cut the stems, tie them together and place the seed heads in a brown paper bag. Hang the stems upside down in a warm well-ventilated place until the herb seeds are done drying. Place the seeds in an airtight container.
