Buzzbee's Garden

Globe thistle

Genus: Echinops.

Species: Echinops ritro.

Bought and divided into 4 plants from Hill of Tarvit in October 2007 and grown on in pots with a view to planting out in Spring 2008. I tried and failed to grow these from seed in 2004, so I am hoping I'll have better joy this time.
