Nigella/Love In A Mist


An unexpected new resident has moved in to our garden this week. I believe this is a Nigella or Love In A Mist.

I vaguely remember we put a few seeds in a while back, the man of the house says two years ago! Suddenly it has sprung to life 🙂

I don’t think it is the ‘right’ Nigella to eat the seeds from but I am not sure so if anyone knows more then do tell!

    1. Morning Faye,

      Here is an article on Nigella sativa This is the type you can eat the seeds from. There is a black seed oil made from the seeds too and there is a fabulous hair recipe for hair loss using this oil somewhere in my library which I can find if anyone is interested.

      My plant is Nigella damascena and I am uncertain whether I can eat these ones or not. I am hoping someone with more knowledge than I will see this and let me know 🙂

    2. Thank you, it is indeed, Faye. I’m just wondering if I can do anything with this particular one I have. These days I eye up every plant which appears with the idea of chewing on it if it won’t kill me…just to see what it tastes like and if I can use it medicinally or indeed in the cooking pot etc ;-D
