Description

Recently discovered in the wild is this rare and incredibly tall form of the lovely "globe thistle" which is perfect for the very back of a tall border. Numerous, tennis ball-sized, spiky heads, loved by bees and butterflies, slowly change from silver to pale blue. Clean, huskless seed is supplied.

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
