Description

A jewel-like mix to grow in a sunny patch and pick for the house. The anchusa and salvia provide the lower storey, the cornflower and verbena the upper, and all three are rich in nectar and pollen.

The seed mix contains:
  • Anchusa 'Blue Angel' (Alkinet)
  • Centaurea 'Blue Boy' (Cornflower)
  • Verbena bonariensis
  • Salvia viridis 'Blue Monday' (Blue Clary)
The plant collection contains:
  • 5 or 10 seedlings of Centaurea 'Blue Boy' (Cornflower)
  • 5 or 10 rooted cuttings of Verbena bonariensis
  • 5 or 10 seedlings of Salvia viridis 'Blue Monday'

Care Tips

As well as the cutting garden these work well amongst a range of plants in a mixed herbaceous border. Support maybe required. Keep moist until established. Deadhead flowers regularly to encourage repeat flowering all summer long.
