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).
|The showy, clear blue flowers of this salvia are the most beautiful of the sage family! Grow en masse for best effect. Makes a good cut flower if you can bear to cut it.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Sow thinly, half an inch deep, in good quality, moist (but not water-logged) compost in a propagator at 18-23C/65-75F. Do not allow to dry out. Germination can be erratic, so don't discard the seeds too soon! Grow on seedlings in 9cm pots, hardening off and planting out when all danger of frost is past. Takes quite easily from cuttings. The tuberous roots can be lifted and stored in a frost-free place in the same manner as for dahlias|
