Pot up Cerinthe plants and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When Cerinthe plants are well grown, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Plant Honeywort in full sun or part shade, in poor, well drained neutral or alkaline soil. On heavier soils, incorporate plenty of grit to improve drainage, prior to planting.
Water regularly until plants are fully established. Honeywort plants seed freely. If seedlings are not required, deadhead the faded Cerinthe flowers as they fade.

A real showstopper!

I had never heard of Cerinthe before, but it will certainly be a necessity in my garden from now on. Our garden is on a corner and everyone who passes comments on how interesting and colourful these plants are. The leaves are a beautiful bluey-green colour and the flowers blue-purple. They have really done well with this year's fantastic summer and I look forward to ordering again for next season.
great plants in a wildlife garden

Very pleased with this purchase as always from t&m. as soon as they arrived I planted them in 3 inch pots thinking that will do until next spring. after a bit of a slow start they went mad and now i have to find some spaces in the garden this year to plant them as they are all full of flower buds, a pleasant surprise this year after such a cold spring.
What a fantastic plant! Great for bees too!

I have only been hooked by gardening for the last 4yrs since my mid 30's but I was overjoyed that my gardening parents hadn't a clue what this plant was. Everyone visiting my back garden commented on it and after I thought it had packed up and had given it a prune it bounced back with a second flourish until a harsh early frost. A must for nature lovers as it was a bee hotspot for many months.
Try something different
By Wendy Stanbury 29-09-2012
I'd never heard or seen these plants before so wasn't quite sure how they would look or turn out. I didn't need to worry, they grew very quickly and I was soon rewarded with purple/mauve nodding bell like flowers. The foliage also adds interest with it's white spotty leaves. Once they got a bit leggy I cut them down and they grew again to give another lovely show of flowers. Very easy plants to maintain.
Stunning plants, really eyecatching

These are really stunning plants, they seem to glow in amongst the othe plants in the border. It's true about the bees as well, they love them!

This is a lovely plant and very unusual. All 3 plants arrived safely and were extremely healthy. They are already flowering in my garden and I am thrilled to bits. Thank you very much
Very good value for money

I bought the 6 x 5cm potted plants and managed to grow 20 very healthy plants; each pot have about 3 to 4 seedlings that I managed to separate.
I am looking forward to seeing the lovely blooms this summer
