Any garden questions to really test us

If sunny how about santolina or artemisia Powys castle? Both silvery aromatic shrubs. Such a small space so one plant would be sufficient. Lavender too?

Growing Eryngium

Lyn, I've grown them and they were less than. 30 cm tall. Aren't they a cultivated form of the wild eryngium grown on cliff edges, Towans, etc. that grow only 10 cm?
You sure they were blue hobbitt?

Is it sunny? Can you dig over the ground? Have you incorporated compost ? A sunny dry site could be good

What's the weather like in your area?

Cosmos problems!

John I agree with Geoff but I also pot on. I repot at least twice, planting slightly deeper each time and pinching out regularly. I then have large bushy sturdy plants to put into the garden in late May
It's prob a lot milder down here but, yes, they should be fine in unheated greenhouse. If cold at night have some fleece to hand
