  • Notes From The Garden

    ...

     

    This particular sea holly can be slow growing in the early stages. However it's totally worth it as once establised it's a stunning colour and plant - requiring little to no maintenace. Sometime you've just got to play the long game! 

     

    Autumn sown plants will flower in the 1st year - but not until late summer.
