how do you propagate sea Erynium planum

On plant Eryngium planum



Not easily - best method is to sow seed and keep in a coldframe over winter and pot on following spring. Otherwise its trying very carefully to separate a clump if it has more than one tap root, or taking root cuttings.

If you go to a branch of '99p Store' at the moment they have 3 roots for ....99p (how surprising!!). They are in plastic bags with cardboard picture attached. These should flower this summer and would be the quickest way to get one...or 3!
