How to Grow Eritrichium from Seed

Eritrichium, or Fairy Borage, is a hardy perennial summer-flowering plant from the alpine regions which belongs to the Forget-me-not family which naturally grows in high exposed positions on rocky ridges.

Fairy Borage should be planted high up on the rockery or in a well-drained wall crevice. Eritrichium roots must be kept moist in summer, and the foliage needs protecting from damp during the winter.

Eritrichium seeds should be sown in well-drained trays filled with a finely-sifted gritty compost. Germination typically takes 14 to 21 days. The seed trays can be left in a greenhouse or cold frame until the seedlings are large enough, at which time they should be transplanted into individual 3 inch pots.
