Echinops ritro Globe thistle

Posted: 02 December 2011
Overall: I agree that this plant is fantastic for attracting wildlife and for providing the bees with plenty of pollen. However, I would have to take issue with the height that the plants reach as 1.2m is somewhat conservative - I have some flowers towering 6.5ft tall!
I would like to ask when the best time is to collect seeds from these plants for sowing later (although it does seem to self seed prolifically on its own!)
