Purchased 03.20 Stringers garden centre. Flowered profusely.
Spring 2021 Given a haircut & removal of any decayed leaves and potted on with Armeria ‘ballerina’ and miniature Dianthus.
I first noticed pink Sea Thrift growing wild along the Suffolk coast. Also remember visiting a cemetery with it growing across many of the graves – pretty without being morbid. This is a gentle memory of those times.
