    The nodding white, trumpet-shaped flowers of this marvellous foxglove are variously splotched and freckled inside their throats with rich maroon - sometimes so heavily that it becomes a solid block of colour. These two-tone flowers appear on sturdy stems throughout the summer and are very appealing to bees.

  • Garden care:Lightly press the seed onto the surface of a well-watered seed compost in mid to late spring and keep in a cold frame. When large enough to handle, pot on into individual cells and once they have developed a decent basal rosette of foliage they can be hardened off before planting out. Foxgloves are great for adding vertical interest to the border and will self-seed freely. They look brilliant in naturalised planting schemes.

  • Sow: March-May

  • Flowering: June-July

  • Approximate quantity: 150 seeds.
