approx 150 seeds £2.79
  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Stately spires of apricot flowers appear in high summer, held above rosettes of large, dark green leaves. This unusual, apricot-coloured foxglove looks marvellous dotted through the back of a cottage-style scheme, or it can be used to add height and drama to a partially shady woodland. An excellent companion for plants with purple or plum flowers.

  • 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. After flowering, cut the spikes back hard, as this may encourage a second, smaller flush. These plants will usually flower in their second year.

  • Sow: March-May

  • Flowering: June-July

  • Approximate quantity: 150 seeds.
  • CAUTION toxic if eaten
