cottage gardens, wildlife gardens, cut flower garden

Pot up plants using free-draining compost, and grow scabious on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outside. Once they are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before planting them outdoors. Choose a sunny position on fertile, well drained, neutral to alkaline soil that is not excessively wet in winter.
Water scabious plants until they are fully established. Deadhead faded scabious flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps in spring.

  1. Healthy little plants.

    6 little healthy plug plants arrived. Transplanted them immediately into pots to grow them on. A week on they are doing very well.
