This is the classic alpine with sheets of the most brilliant blue starry flowers in spring. The small clumps of tufted leaves slowly spread to produce a solid cushion. Easy from fresh seed.
Sowing advice: Although seeds can be sown at any time, they may be best sown in winter or early spring as they benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost after sowing to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly indeed with sand or fine grit, a good guide is about the depth of the seed size. They may also be sown at any time and if the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. These seeds may still take several months to appear so please never discard the pot or tray.
