How to raise Eryngium Alpinum from seeds please?

Posted: 06/09/2016 at 20:51

I don't do anything except slug pick occasionally from sowing time to germination time, they don't need watering before they germinate, the weather does that. You're copying nature, nothing artificial

they'll probably not germinate til spring, I often bring my cold germinating stuff into an unheated GH about Feb so I can keep and eye on them and nothing wipes them out. I bring anything that germinates before spring into the cold GH as well, same reason. I go around the outside pots slug picking, they lurk under pots, sling them on the drive for the birds

I wouldn't worry, something will eat them. They don't look like serious pests

Wyevale gone to pot!

English Ivy alternatives?

I t won't seed if it's kept clipped against a fence, It doesn't flower til it gets to the billowing out stage. Cut off any that starts changing the shape of its leaves to the mature growth shape.

Unlikely to get out of control in a pot, stop watering it in summer, that'll stop it dead.

There is nothing that grows and does exactly what you want without a little attention now and again.

Known as T moths here from the shape when parked. Lovely things, great to see the markings in such detail Sheps, not likely from one of my photos

Anyone recognise this plant?

I think so Berghill. 

Everything will die back for winter. You can remove dead flowers and stems now but let the leaves die back on their own
