drawback I can see with planting one of each group, they'll twine together and be a right B..... at pruning times.
The pics are a bit small and my eyes are a bit old. But echiums are mostly if not always biennial, this looks like a perennial. Possibly one of the comphreys.
They germinated like mustard and cress Tilley (or like aquilegias anyway) I kept about 15,
I wouldn't mind some troughs or a raised bed to try a few tinies but I've never got round to it yet.
Is there a photo Jc?
Hum. I grew this from seed from a plant I bought last year. It was bigger than that. Probably force fed on something in a polytunnel. I think these will be looking for a new home.
I think you'll find the roots that are outside the pot are the most important bits for uptake of water and nutrients. I'd uproot the lot, abandon the pot (big hammer or stanley knife as appropriate) and find it a good home with the roots well spread out and some nice compost.
I knew it was small but this is ridiculous. That's a 3" pot, the stem must be almost non existent
Lovely day 20C. watered all the babies, nursed the sick (OH with a cough) tea breaks outside.
still 14C out there and the bats are out.
Is it starving Phil? or have you potted on and fed it.
Plantfinder finds everything BEL. It sounds like a white one. If you can't get one of those try 'White Icicle', I love that one.
