Mignonette was introduced to ornamental gardens in Europe about 1725, and because of its sweet fragrance both as a garden plant and as a cut flower, its popularity grew steadily on both sides of the Atlantic through the 19th century. Thomas Jefferson recorded sowing seeds for this annual at Monticello in 1811. The tiny, pale green and white flowers emit a fresh, fruity scent in summer and are attractive to bees and butterflies.

Mignonette does not respond well to transplanting; direct sow seeds in a prepared seedbed when soil temperatures climb above 70°F in mid-late spring. Approximately 250-280 seeds per packet.
