Androsace x marpensis
« on: May 07, 2024, 08:02:32 PM »
Has anyone experience of growing Androsace x marpensis in pots ? I have two which I have had for quite a few years, and still in the same pot I am ashamed to say. They are probably desperate to be potted on and wonder if anyone can recommend a suitable compost mix? There seems very little on the net re cultivation. They seem easy enough to grow but very reluctant to flower although I think Eric Jarrett grew a very floriferous plant which won a Farrer some years ago

I believe Mike Ireland, who is on this forum,  grows or grew this plant and judging by the photo of it on his website, it flowered well, so perhaps he's the one to ask!
