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).

Sowing time/depth ,
Small, clear-blue globes of loveliness! The blooms appear in late-spring to early summer on straight, slender stems. The foliage dies down before the flowers appear. I hope to offer seeds later in 2016.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Stratify by mixing seed with a handful of damp compost in a plastic bag, sealed and placed in the fridge for 4 weeks. Sow shallowly in spring in modules, maintaining a temperature of at least 50F and keeping moist but not waterlogged. Germination is erratic. Plant out young plants carefully, avoiding bruising the leaves. Mark the position clearly as it will be some time before the plants establish and they will die down completely at the end of the year.
