PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).
|Bupleurum rotundifolium 'Griffithii'|
|Common Hare's Ear|
|Lovely in flower arrangements!|
|A very useful filler both in the flower beds and in flower arrangements (fresh or dried), this plant resembles euphorbia, but without the irritating, milky sap. The foliage is bluish-green and the tiny flowers a vivid yellow-green. Gently self-seeds.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|It is usually recommended to sow direct, but seedlings can also be raised in a cool greenhouse or cold frame. In either case, light is required for germination, which normally takes from 7-14 days, so cover seed with the barest layer of soil or compost. Prick out seedlings grown under glass into small pots or modules and plant out in early summer.|
