    Product Details

    Description

    Wild chicory is a gorgeous hardy perennial perfect for cottage gardens. 

    It produces sky blue flowers on slender, woody stems and is highly attractive to bees, butterflies and hoverflies. 

    Plant Care Tips

    It grows best in sandy soil or dry grasslands and likes full sun. The beautiful blue flowers open during the morning hours and then close up as the afternoon passes. 
    Sow indoors in March/April thinly into pots or seed trays and gently firm down.
    Keep warm (16-20 degrees) and moist
    Transplant when large enough to handle into 5cm apart into larger trays/pots
    Gradually acclimatise before planting out in late May
    Or sow directly outdoors and very lightly cover with fine soil in Aug/Sept for earlier summer flowering the next year
