That's Himalayan balsam, seeds like mad.
They do well in the sun and with dry soil. Very good in gravel. It will die back in winter and all the dead can be cut off. I don't have 'Blue Hobbit' but never water any eryngium and they do fine.
It's a bit dark in there
Have a look at some of the Leptinellas, eg 'Platt's Black'
Great, all delivered
Shout if you need any help Jo. All hardy, no heat ever required to germinate my seeds
Not unless you've got a big heated GH Lyn
The seeds follow on from those orange flowers Mistertiler.
seeds are easy, I've never thought of doing anything else. It's a shrub/tree in its native habitat but a tender plant grown as an annual in the UK
Sugar as it sugar cane Lynn?
or Sugar Rush
or sugar beet?
I had a phase where I didn't like birds flying near me.
I blame Hitchcock,
got over it now though
Jo hasn't reported in yet. Otherwise all mine have been delivered
