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).

This traditional cottage garden plant is a must! Easy to grow, and making a wonderful cut flower, the blooms are coloured from white and cream to various shades of blue, on tall stems. As a bonus, both seed heads and foliage are attractive.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow shallowly, covering with a thin layer of good quality, moist, but free-draining compost at 59-68F/15-20C. Transplant seedlings into individual pots when they are large enough to handle and grow on, planting out when all risk of frost is past. Give autumn sowings the protection of a cold frame over winter.
