Perfect for pollinators

Sea holly -eryngium maritimun – is found in sand dunes in the wild, where it will tolerate drought well. In gardens it will tolerate very poor soils and can be grown for its decorative foliage in a sunny flower border. Sea holly attracts a range of insect life such as Bees, and Butterflies. It is a low growing plant with blue flowers that appear mainly in June and July. Sea holly looks best alongside other native plants that grow well on sandy soils such as Common Toadflax, Lady’s Bedstraw, Viper Bugloss, Wild Carrot and Common Evening Primrose.

How to grow Sea holly Seeds
Sea holly seeds should be sown in autumn, outside, where they are to flower. Sow seeds at about 6mm deep in a sandy soil. Germination will normally occur the following spring.

RHS Perfect for Pollinators.
The RHS Perfect for Pollinators mark is only given to plants that support pollinating insects in gardens. Bees, butterflies, moths, hoverflies and many others visit flowers to feed on nectar and pollen; while doing so they transfer pollen and increase seed set and fruit development.
