I'm mean't to be doing housework!

Cerinthe major Purpurascens - Honeywort

 I have a plant in my garden that I keep trying to get rid of yet it keeps coming back! My sister gave it to me when I needed to fill some gaps and it self sows everywhere. I saw it on Sarah Raven's web site and realised you could use it as a cut flower, so I'll be keeping this one. If you would like free seeds then just let me know because it normally drops loads! It looks nice in an old Denby coffee jug I picked up at an indoor sale last year. Right back to housework. Have a great weekend. Amanda x

Have you got any of your Cerinthe seeds left? It looks so beautiful, I'd love some for the gardens here at York Rise. The fact that it self-seeds is even better, as I'd have more year on year! If yes, please drop me an email at and I can email you my address. Fingers crossed and thanks! Caro x
