Miss Willmott’s ghost


I have always enjoyed the story that when Ellen Willmott

Visited her friends gardens,

She scattered the seeds of Erygium giganteum without them knowing.

Some of my Erygium are E.”stuntedeum”

As I forgot to pot them on and plant them out.

Fingers crossed they will still self seed

    Welcome back Digger. I must say though that this angle makes him look very cross.

    I have one in a pot and am praying for seeds- they must be fresh. This is such a good plant.
    Poor Digger is worrying about prickles in his head- like weeding under the rose bushes and being stabbed from above!

    • I grew mine from seeds. It is a lovely plant – the only prickly plant allowed in my garden!
      Hope yours seeds itself abundantly

  4. I must try Eryngiums again – every time I plant them they die. Somewhere there is a mystical garden filled with my failures – Clematis, Echinops, Gentians and Eryngiums in particular!

    • Oh – know about that mystical garden, it is certainly full of Clematis!
