1 x 1 Litre Potted Plant (KC9075)

Plant Armeria in full sun on well drained soil. Sea Thrift is tolerant of poor sandy soils once established and copes well in coastal areas. On heavier soils, incorporate plenty of grit to improve drainage, prior to planting.
Deadhead faded flowers to extend the flowering season throughout the summer. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of armeria in spring to maintain their vigour.
