Reseda Odorata Machet

Mignonette Machet (Reseda Odorata Machet) - Grow Mignonette seeds for this old-fashioned Victorian favorite. This Mignonette flower was introduced in 1889 and is lovely in the mixed border. The small white spikes of fringed, red flowers possess a wonderful sweet ambrosia-like fragrance with a hint of raspberry. The Reseda Odorata flower is great for cutting, and it's sweet fragrance is used in perfumes.

Growing Mignonette from seed is not difficult, but the flower seed should be started outdoors as the plants do not transplant well. Prepare a seedbed and place the Mignonette seeds on the surface, pressing the flower seed into the soil and barely covering. Maintain moisture until germination occurs. Thin the Mignonette seedlings to the strongest plant, 12 inches apart. Young Reseda Odorata plants should be pinched back to encourage a bushier growth habit. Mignonette seeds can be sown over a period of time to create a longer growing season.
