Description

Beautiful, graceful flowers with ruffled petals the colour of a deep blue summer sky.

Once common in cornfields, it is perfect for naturalising in a sunny wildflower border and is loved by butterflies and bees.

These flowers are delivered to you as young plants that are around 12cm (5in) from root to tip.

Plants at this stage are at the perfect stage of development to grow and flower really fast once planted.

If you receive your plants before April pot up into larger pots and plant out into containers or beds from April onwards.

On a pleasant and dry spring or summer day plant out into soil and water well. As the plants start to flower add a high potassium fertiliser to give your flowers a real boost.
