Gardening advice on how to grow Eryngium Jade Frost

Eryngium Jade Frost is a beautiful variegated and a long lived perennial Sea Holly which is easy to grow.

They look very good in a mixed border. They can be planted next to paths and sitting areas as the foliage is fairly soft and the architectural deep violet flowers are spiky but not spiny and sharpe. They look brilliant as a single plant and fabulous in groups.

Eryngium Jade frost needs reasonable drained to dry soils, so avoid waterlogged winter soils. We have grown it in full sun and bright dappled shade but it does not like being overgrown by adjacent plants.

It is also fine in a hot and dry soil but if you plant it in this position during a dry spell be prepared to water it until it is established. Remember when you water any of your plants in the garden or in pots, the frequency of watering will vary depending on the plant type but when you water make sure the water gets down to the roots, don't just wet the soil surface.

They do well in the normal range of garden soils and specific feeding is not needed.

Please be careful not to damage the roots when you plant them out and never disturb the plants afterwards. If you break any of the main roots they will produce all green shoots from this break.

So plant it and enjoy, from the multi coloured rosette of leaves that appears in the early spring to the late summer flowers.

Happy planting Jim and Megan
