Helicrysum – Strawflower (Organic)

£1.62

A beautiful mix of white, pink orange and yellow flowers on plants 40cm tall. Strawflowers (also known as ‘everlasting flowers’) are a beautiful addition to the garden. They are perfectly suited for drying, just cut the stem before they are fully open and hang in bunches upside down in a dry place out of direct sunlight. They are also great as a fresh flower for use in bouquets. We love the bright colours in this mix, they remind us of colourful boiled sweets!

Helicrysum tips: Sow strawflowers in early spring indoors into modules, or into a seed tray and then prick out when large enough to handle. Only lightly cover the seeds with compost. Transplant outside in May once danger of frost has passed.
Alternatively, direct sow in May in shallow drills, 30cm apart, and thin to 30cm in the row.
