Eryngium planum – A 99p seed growers guide. 

It takes 5-10 years for a garden to establish and much longer if your garden design includes a canopy of trees. Growing your own plants from 99p seed will ensure your garden continues to develop and establish its own identity without costing the earth.

Your garden will of course have ideas of its own! It will allow plants to thrive in some areas of your garden and die. Short lived shrubs and perennials actively change the structure of your garden.

Eryngium planum or sea holly may be an unexpected addition to your garden but it is sure to delight with its bright blue stems and flower bracts.
Plant with contrasting colour and depth of foliage to enjoy Eryngium planum at it’s best.
