  • Lets talk about them



    How to describe these? golfballs on sticks, so understated. Look superb in any arrangement dried or fresh. Relished by bees, butterflies and humans alike. Super easy to grow perennial. One of my faves.




  • How to make these beauties grow



    Sow: Early Spring. 8-10 weeks before the last frost.  Or autumn for overwintering. 


    How: Sow to a depth of 3mm


    Space: 60cm   


    Height: 90cm   


    Where: Full sun


    Days to Maturity: 365


    Pick: When the balls are fully formed



  • Notes from the garden



    Once established very drought tolerant. Takes a full year to flower from sowing - but it's worth the wait. Think carefully about its final growing place - Echinops forms a very deep tap root and is practically impossible to move once it's established. 


    Fabulous for companion planting along side Sea Holly and Sea Lavender Statice.
