Baby's breath Covent Garden - Gypsophila. Baby’s-breath is an excellent cut flower and dried flower. Looks very pretty in bouquets. Can be sown relatively early in the season as it resists the cold well. It does, however, prefer well-drained, calcium-rich soil. When pre-sowing, transplant the seedlings at the indicated distance when they are sufficiently large enough for transplanting. Sluis Garden seeds from Holland.
