Cornflowers for next year

I've had lovely cornflowers I grew from seed.  Will I have to sow fresh seed for next year or will they reseed themselves all over the place?   thanks, Maggie

    Cornflowers readily re-seed themselves if you let them die down naturally.

    But do collect some seed so you can start them off in trays in spring if nothing comes up or the slugs have the self-sown seedlings.  Belt and braces.  image

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
