An abundance of blue pincushion scabious flowers will attract bees and butterflies throughout summer. The tall, wiry stems can also be cut to create a pretty display indoors.

Flowering Months
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.
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.

Healthy little plants. 2017-03-16

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

Healthy plugs eventually 2016-05-04

So far so OK. 6 arrived, one had passed away but one plug had two plants so separated them and now have my 6.

No 'blues' with these. 2014-06-09

Received these plants in March and grew them on in the greenhouse. Once planted out they have performed really well, with their lovely blue flowers making quite a change in the border at this time of year. They have flowered non-stop for months and are a very useful plant for the front of the border.
