MORE INFORMATION

Be the next gardener dazzled by the memorable blooms of this ‘Skylover’ Anagallis, which is commonly known as ‘Blue Pimpernel’.

Pretty cornflower-blue flowerheads grow in abundance from spreading stems to create a carpet of flowers, perfect for rockery or alpine gardens, adding interest throughout the summer.

The colourful display on each flower needs to be seen to be believed – five blue-purple petals brighten to lilac, then white towards the centre, acting as a bed for a handful of yellow central stamens.

This classy perennial boasts a low, branching habit, ideal for drifting at the very front of borders, or even for filling out a hanging basket, thanks to the healthy and unique foliage.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Supplied as a set of 12 plug plants, ready to be grown on before planting out.

CARE INFORMATION

Top Tips

Plant each plug approximately 20cm apart to give each room to grow.

Care Guide

Planting advice

  • Unpack plugs immediately and stand them in water for an hour.
  • If you can’t do this, they can sit in their mini greenhouse for a week if upright and not too wet.
  • Plugs may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but they’ll quickly recover.
  • Put them somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • When potting on, handle plugs carefully. Pot on using our 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays, using good multi-purpose compost.
  • Alternatively plant straight into baskets and grow on for a week or two before hanging up.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry. They don’t like to be left in standing water.
  • Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.
  • Deadhead when flowers fade to encourage more flowers.


Aftercare advice

  • Regular maintenance and watering are essential to grow fabulous baskets that last the whole season.
  • Check and water baskets every day in summer, unless the compost is wet.
  • Aim to keep the compost moist but not soggy and avoid wetting the foliage and flowers.
  • From March to June, apply a general-purpose liquid fertiliser once a week.
