Seed Details

Mignonette is unique in so many ways. These plants smell incredible and create interest in the gardens with their unique form. And although they may not be the most colourful flower it compensates for that fact by it's intensely sweet, distance travelling scent. Few plants can come close to the beautifully unique perfume they produce. They will attract a plethora of beneficial honeybees that will sport glorious orange balls of pollen from the flowers which grow in a helix pattern. Honey bees in your garden is ALWAYS a good thing. Makes a great addition to any moon garden by adding white glow and intense scent on an evening stroll. Excellent cut flower, fresh or dried and even retains its fragrance.


Mignonette seed should be started outdoors as they are not fond of transplanting. It is best to prepare a seedbed and place the Mignonette seeds on the surface. Press the seed into the soil and barely cover. Maintaining moisture until germination occurs is recommended. Mignonette isn’t fussy about soil, though it grows best in moist conditions, and can tolerate full sun to part shade. Germination 21 days.

Mignonette is a relatively unknown flower. Introduced in the south of France by the name of Mignonette, Little-darling, which spread across Europe in about 10 years time. Its vanilla like scent became popular in London in 1752. Londoners often planted it in pots on balconies and patios, this filled the streets with its sweet vanilla like scent, that it was believed to protect the inhabitants from the ill effects of stagnant air emanating from the uncared for river and trash piles throughout the ever growing city.

From our customers


I’ve purchased seeds from this company twice and both transactions were pleasant. I really loved the diversity and quality of the various seeds sold. My first purchase was three varieties of cherry tomatoes, lime basil, speckled lettuce, kale, French radish, cilantro and parsley. I called today and had an amazing 25 minute conversation about what seeds could work for my balcony garden as it transitions into fall. They are very knowledgeable, passionate and kind. I wouldn’t hesitate to refer friends or family to this small business as my preference is to shop local. I will be purchasing through them going forward as they were helpful and the quality of seeds are great.

I went a bit crazy this year and ordered seeds from large and small companies all over Canada. The Brother Nature website is enjoyable to browse, and I like how the seeds can be viewed by weather and light conditions, and perennials by hardiness zone. I feel that their prices, shipping offer, and the seed quantities are very reasonable. My Brother Nature order arrived in good time right along with the other seed orders placed at the same time, and their packaging was simple and environmentally-friendly.

I buy more and more seeds from Brother Nature each year! They offer excellent quality seeds, competitive prices, and great service! I enjoy the variety of seeds they carry and their seed envelopes have more info than your regular packet, even some history/origin behind the seeds, which I find very fun and interesting. Highly recommended.
