Eryngium planum 'Blaukappe' (Sea holly 'Blaukappe')  is a clump-forming perennial with the most metallic blue of all "sea holly" flowers. Heart-shaped leathery leaves surround these exotic blooms which make superb cut flowers, and when dried out, retain their colour indefinitely.

 

Sowing Advice:

For best results, sow seeds onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20°C degrees. Although they can be sown at any time, these seeds may sometimes wait for spring before emerging, but spring sowing will obviously give them a full season of growth.

 

Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Plant in the greenhouse in individual large pots, or 3 plants per growbag when 20cm (8in) high. Can be planted outdoors, 45cm (18in) apart once all frost risk has passed

 

Suitable for the Garden, vegetable garden, allotments, borders and containers.

Be prepared to water well and supplement feed with high-potash feed during season. Regular feeding is recommended.
