I made the same mistake. You have two plants confused. Nigella damascena is an ornamental  
In the same family. It does not have the same benefits as nigella sativa & some sources claim  
That it is poisonous.

I believe that what we mainly have in our gardens is Nigella damascena. Nigella sativa has slightly different shaped seed pods. Please see the article at this link. Has good photos.
