was deadheading in the garden yesterday And got a little skin burn from something. Everything in the vicinity was pretty ordinary (cornflowers, scabious, lychnis coronaria) with one exception. I have been growing an Echium Candicans from seed. It is quite large now and I think this may be the culprit. Do I need to wear gloves when handling this. I'd hate to lose it as I think we'll get the first flowers next year.
