    You will need to be more specific, what do you mean by blue thistle, there are many different species.
    Some need propagating from seed, others from root cuttings and some by division.

    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    It's an Eryngium. They can be divided to increase stock, or you can do root cuttings.

    They’ll self seed or you can collect then when ripe and sow your own.
