Organic Poached Egg Plant

Limnanthes Douglasii – 0.52g – Approx 75 Seeds.        RHS AGM Logo          Soil Association Organic Logo

Affectionately known as the ‘Poached Egg’ Plant due to its bright yellow center surrounded by white petals, Limnanthes Douglasii is a low growing annual which makes the perfect edging plant.

It is an ideal plant to grow in your kitchen garden or allotment as it attracts beneficial insects such as bees and hoverflies. It will also self seed prolifically so even though it is an annual it will naturalise and pop up year after year!

The seeds can be direct sown in spring at a depth of 3mm. They can also be sown under cover in late summer/early autumn for flowers the following spring.
