I bought one of these at my garden centre today because it looked nice on the label, but I really have no idea what conditions it needs and how to grow it
Doesn't like it too dry put puts up with most else. Seeds about well
Thankyou nutcutlet, do you know how big it grows?
In my garden (too dry really) about 18" to 2'. I think they might be capable of more than that in good soil. It doesn't last here but I've always got a few new seeded ones coming on.
Does it get many plants around it, as I was aiming for a wildlife garden?
Thought you might mean bees so googled and found this. In your bee enquiries has anyone mentioned the biennial Eryngium giganteum? That's my top bee plant here.
Oh god yes I did mean bees haha, I'm browsing plants on ebay at the moment too so bit of a distraction Thankyou for the link, just about to check it out and no I havent heard of Eryngium Giganteum..Is it easy to grow and do you know how?
Thanks for that Verdun, I will definitely look into getting seeds straight away, how did you grow it?
And do you think I should've got more than one polenomium?
Okay thats a good idea, do you know when it flowers? And I'll just buy a plant too and I expect you can save seeds from eryngium cant you?
