The pretty little soft-red, globe-shaped flowerheads on stems 8-12in/20-30cm tall rising above low-growing rosettes of evergreen foliage are a magnet for pollinating insects. These tough plants are easy to grow and tolerate quite harsh conditions and poor, sandy soil.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow February-June or in early Autumn. It can aid germination to soak seeds in warm water for a few hours prior to sowing. Sow onto the surface of moist, but not waterlogged, compost, covering with a fine sprinkling of sieved compost or fine vermiculite. Place in a propagator or plastic bag at 16-18C/60-70F, potting on seedlings as they germinate (this usually occurs with 30 days, but can be erratic). Grow on in cooler conditions where there is not too much direct sunlight. When good root systems have developed, plant out in a sunny position when all risk of frost has passed. Sea thrift thrives in sandy conditions, so it is a good idea to incorporate grit into heavy soils before planting.
