Product Information

An early blooming Salvia, ‘Farina’ will flower continuously from May in a range a cooling colours from white to blue and the deepest violet - they’re wonderfully elegant.

These compact, clump forming Salvias have scented leaves and produce masses of upright spires that are covered with tiny flowers from May all the way until October – an incredibly long flowering season! Being shorter than many varieties, not only are they a perfect addition to the edges of borders but they also look fabulous in raised beds, pots and containers.

Easy to grow and drought tolerant, they just need regular deadheading and watering to encourage repeat flowering all summer long. The flower spikes are extremely weather resistant, so they maintain their composure even in the unpredictable wet and dry of a UK summer. Bees, butterflies and other pollinators absolutely adore Salvias, and they make ideal cut flowers too.

Supplied as a collection of 12 plug plants in 6 colours:

  • Arctic Blue – speckled blue and white
  • Bicolour Blue – Blue and silver spikes
  • Blue – Dark ultramarine
  • Silver Blue – Pale silvery blue spires
  • Violet – Rich, deep violet
  • White – Pure white

Care Information

Planting Advice

  • Give your plugs a little attention on arrival - unpack them immediately, and either mist them or stand them in water for an hour - they may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but they’ll quickly recover.
  • If you can’t do this, they can sit in Mini Greenhouses for a week if upright and not too wet.
  • We recommend that you leave them to settle for a day somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • When you're ready to pot on, use a good quality, multi-purpose compost, and fill 3-4in pots (7-10cm).
  • Make a hole in the compost with a dibber or your finger, then holding each plug by its root ball, place it into the hole and gently firm the compost around it.
  • For great results, we recommend using our Windowsill Planters or 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry as they don’t like to be left in standing water.
  • Grow on either on a bright windowsill or a greenhouse for 3-4 weeks before potting up into containers or into flower beds.
  • If planting directly into flower beds when all risk of frost has passed, prepare the ground well, removing weeds and digging in some compost or well-rotted manure if your soil is not already rich.
  • Plant approx. 20cm (8in) apart to allow them room to grow.

Aftercare Advice

  • Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.
  • Dead head when flowers fade to encourage more blooms.
