I started some by seed and they look miserable. Yours are a success!

@MelanieAt Sorry yours weren't so good. These look good close up but they still aren't as striking as I'd hoped

Another first for me, growing these from seed. Hope they get a little less subtle as they grow a bit more #cerinthe

Mine didn't germinate. Looks lovely. I love the shape of the whole plant.

@trina I saw them in Sarah Raven's garden Perch Hill when I visited last summer. I loved them too but her's had darker purple leaves and were more striking

I love Cerinthe and grow them most years, they don't like to dry out and they make wonderful cut flowers but seal the end of the stems in hot water from a kettle for 30 seconds to prolong vase life. Bees love them to. 😊

@cjgardener thanks for this, I am very meticulous about watering so fingers crossed they go from strength to strength
