Care Guide

Average Pest and Disease Resistance

Eryngiums can have issues with Slugs and Snails, Root Rot and Powdery Mildew. For Slugs and Snails, it is important to keep the area around the plant debris free and as dry as possible, especially at night as slugs and snails love damp conditions. You can use barriers such as egg shells or copper wire to surround the plant to prevent slugs and snails reaching the leaves. It is also a good idea to spray your plant with water which has boiled some garlic in it for around 2 hours. For more serious slug and snail control you can also use specific nematodes that will find the pests and cause them to die. To prevent Powdery Mildew you should try to prevent crowded and humid conditions. Properly space plants apart and get rid of any weeds. Water at the soil and try to prevent soil splashing from the soil onto the leaves. To prevent Root Rot you should avoid over watering your plants and ensure the soil is free-draining. Heavy soils that often get waterlogged is the main reason root rot occurs. If your soil is heavy, try adding some gravel or perlite into the soil to help improve its drainage.MORE

Water Lightly

Eryngium needs very little watering if at all. If you experience a very hot and prolonged dry period the plants may need to be watered if they look distressed. Otherwise, once the plant has established itself it will generally not need watering at all.MORE

Full Sun to Partial Shade

Plant somewhere where the plant will receive around 6 hours of direct sunlight every day.MORE

Any Well-Drained Soil

Eryngium performs best in dry and well-drained soils. If your soil is particularly clay heavy and gets waterlogged often then try mixing in plenty of organic matter such as garden compost and also perlite or gravel to improve drainage.MORE

Not Required

Don't worry, this isn't a hungry plant so your food bills won't be going up!MORE

Prune Lightly

Prune away flower stems after the bloom has finished and give the plant a little tidy up in spring removing any dead leaves.MORE
