The Kew Flowerhouse range of seeds from Thompson and Morgan has been specially created alongside the experts at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, to bring the beauty of the garden inside. This outstanding range of handpicked seeds are perfect for enjoying in the garden or in the home. This range includes show-stopping flowers and elegant floral fillers ideal for a bouquet.
Eryngium leavenworthii is a lesser-known annual variety which deserves to be more widely grown. Its annual life cycle means that it is a prolific flowerer, producing masses of spiky bracts in a stunning metallic violet, earning it the common name of ‘Purple Pineapple’. It’s known for attracting masses of bees and butterflies and makes an excellent subject for a dry and sunny Mediterranean border where it looks fabulous with yellow Achilleas. Allow some plants to self-sow to create random drifts through borders. Height 50-90cm (20-36in).
