Why We Love It

Give your garden a striking focal point with Solanum crispum ‘Glasnevin’.

This semi-evergreen climbing shrub has delicately scented violet-blue flowers with a pointed yellow centre; these appear from mid-summer to mid-autumn.

How to Plant

Use any type of soil with a neutral to slightly alkaline pH. Position 'Glasnevin' in full sun and water well after planting.

Into the Ground

  1. Water your plant well.
  2. Dig through the soil to loosen it.
  3. Make a hole twice as wide as the rootball.
  4. Place your plant in the hole. Make sure that the top of the roots are visible and level with the surface of the soil.
  5. Fill in the hole with soil, firming to remove air pockets.
  6. Firm the soil and water well.

Into a Pot

  1. Cover the drainage holes in your pot using stones or pieces of broken pot.
  2. Add the compost to your container.
  3. Gently loosen the roots of your plant and place it in the container.
  4. Check that the top of the roots is level with the top of the compost, approximately 2.5cm below the edge of the container.
  5. Fill the container.
  6. Firm the compost and water well.
