Product Description

A truly dramatic garden plant, a close relative of Borage, it produces the most spectacular tall flower spikes seemingly from nowhere in Summer.

Despite it's common name of 'Pride of Madeira', it is hardy in the UK down to -5C or so, particularly where it is drier in Winter. it is biennial, so needs one cold Winter after germination to flower so these should thus flower in their first year and beyond.

A common site in Cornwall as well, grow it in very well drained soils, or in large pots with plenty of sand or grit for drainage. When it does grow in Spring, keep it well watered between May and August as it grows quickly.

It self-seeds in a small area, and once these seedlings have germinated, and over-wintered they too may flower away and a little colony appears. Truly spectacular and one of the most favoured plants by bees you can grow.

What Is Supplied

Item 680023 supplied as:
Supplied as an over-wintered plant in a 2L pot, between 30-50cm tall, ready to flower in this first Summer.

When I got in touch with You Garden to complain about their courier, and the fact that the Tulipa planter had been slung on top of the plant and caused damage, I was met with (very polite) disinterest. I will never use the company again, and will never recomend them.

Unfortunately the advertisement I purchased from, in my view, was very misleading. The picture states that the plants would be in a 'free decorative planter.' When I advised them that the pot had split during transportation, the reply was that it was only a pot for for transportation. I was aware that AT SOME STAGE the plants would need to be either in the garden or in a larger pot, but why advertise a 'free decorative planter?'
Product:
Plants are large and healthy enough, but I needed to prune off many brown leaves, on arrival. I was unable to send a photograph of their original state as I needed to tend to the plants fairly quickly and they now look o.k.

Was told order would be sent around 11 May. A week later we chasedvit up and were told that due to big demand would now go out around 20 June but in fact the Echium arrived around 26 May. Very pleased with the plant.

I was told by various phone sales people that one of my items was available for immediate dispatch however it did not arrive. I was given various excuses such as courier problems, supplier problems etc. When I finally spoke to a supervisor it was explained that it had been decided that one item had been held back so that everything could be delivered together. Complete order arrived shortly after. I had been scammed by another mail order company before and was beginning to think this one was the same. I have had no problems with this company in the past. Why can't they give the real reason rather than make up excuses? Plants supplied in the past have always been excellent.
I will buy from them again.

Product:
When delivered, although we were pleased the plant had been left in the greenhouse as we were out when it was delivered, the courier had lain the carton down the wrong way. It stated the carton should be kept upright, not horizontal. The echium therefore had a kink at the top of the plant. It seems to be gradually straightening now.
