A Blooms Day Extra: For Patient Gardener

I was feeling a bit mean that I only gave you one picture for this month's Blooms Day, so when Patient Gardener asked to see the Echinops I wrote about last Sunday, I thought it would be churlish to refuse.

I hope they bring cheer on a not so good day for you Helen. I'm sure Plan B will be fine :)


  1. I don't grow them, but they look very fun, like tiny death stars waving above the garden.

  2. Lovely thanks and they look quite upright as well!

  3. MMD - they're fun and very easy to grow :)

    PG - unlike the Eryngiums in the picture which have flopped everywhere!
