More Details

Until last year I avoided growing limonium (used to be called Stachys) in my garden. Too much maiden-aunt, summer-pub-fireplace for me. How wrong could I have been. These flowers for months solidly, particularly if you keep picking them regularly and of course, they’re the most sustainable things to have to decorate your house through the winter — the stylish everlasting brigade. I love the colour and airiness of this apricot form.

Please note: If you have already placed an order for this packet of seed, our warehouse is now expecting to be sending them out in late November, We apologise for the delay.

Sowing, Seeds, Planting Sow under cover March-April. Sow thinly and place somewhere warm, keep moist. Prick out and pot on when seedlings are large enough to handle. Grow on in a light, frost-free place. Harden off before planting out after the frosts. Any seedlings that are looking spindly or 'leggy' can be pinched out before planting to help promote strong, bushy growth.
Care Tips Avoid overwatering. Keep cutting for the vase to prolong blooming.
Flowering July - October
Vase Life Strip the bottom leaves and sear stem ends in boiling water for 10 seconds and then leave in cool water, ideally overnight before arranging.
Storing For drying, hang these upside, using an elastic band, which will shrink as stems dry and these will last and keep their colour for months or even years.
