Re: Help please..... what is this plant?

Message from Simon Hickmott

In forum: Identify a plant

This is Eryngium planum, a desirable garden plant, and certainly NOT a teasel. I hope you have not disposed of it.

Re: Pests or normal

Message from Carol

In forum: Pests, diseases and invasive biosecurity risks

You would expect both to die back completely over winter - there would be nothing green and vigorous showing above ground of either eryngium or astrantia. If still in their pots, there is a greater risk of frostbite and waterlogging. If in their final places, there is a greater risk of being eaten by soil organisms.

You pick the flower at its prime and hang it up side down in dry dark place, it may not keep its metallic blue, but no harm in trying.

I just checked my plant and it is showing a small shoot, I will cut the old twigs off in a week or so just to ensure it has some weather protection.

If it is still alive it will throw up new shoots from the base of the plant, when you see these, then cut back the old dry stem, it does help to provide some protection against frost.So long as it is well drained over winter it should be OK

Question from Scottishguy333

In forum: Eryngium zabelii 'Big Blue'

I haven't trimmed or pruned it in anyway and was wondering if I need too or if it will come back again. The stocks look dead.....very dry and brittle, can you help. I'm not the best gardener and don't want it to die. can you help.

Re: ERYNGIUM BOURGATII

Message from Ruskins Trees

In forum: Eryngium bourgatii 'Oxford Blue'

Good advice from Mr Bloom. We move trees and shrubs every day. I would like to add, water the plants a couple of days before, when moving try to only pick up and plant in one movement, to keep the roots together. If you have time (even a month or so) root prune, to spread the stress over 2 or more events, just dig a sharp spade around each group of plants. Also do not forget next summer that you have moved these, water them during dry periods.

In forum: Eryngium bourgatii 'Oxford Blue'

Hi there, you can in theory move most plants anytime, but weather conditions mean that certain considerations need to be taken into account and best time to move is late spring and early autumn. But if you want to move a plant now, just make sure you've dug out a fair amount around the root ball, add some organic matter to hole and give a good watering every day, unless it rains, it should be fine!

Re: Mystery plant

Message from Melanie Driver

In forum: Identify a plant

I think your right Jo. Eryngium planum is a lovely evergreen sea holly flowering from midsummer to autumn with beautiful light blue flowers with spikey blue green bracts. Height around 90cm. Prefers a dry well drained spot with full sun and protect from winter wet. Enjoy!
Melanie
