Digitalis purpurea albiflora / White Foxglove / Seeds

A white form of Foxglove with spikes of white spotted flowers in June and July.  Plants grow to a height of 1.2 - 2m, and are good for back of borders, wildflower and wooded areas. They attract butterflies and bees into the garden.  They make excellent cut flowers.  There may be a small number of off-white flowers, and these plants can be removed if not needed.


Foxgloves grow best in part or dappled shade and well-drained soil.  Plants will flower in full sun.  Protect flower spikes from strong winds.


Pack of approx 1000 small seeds.  Sow in spring to summer.  Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.

 

  

Caution: The plants are toxic if eaten.

Sow

Sow in spring/summer for next year flowers.  Sow in a tray or cells of seed compost, press the seeds lightly into the soil and do not cover.  Do not exclude light which helps germination.   Spray with a general garden fungicide.  Keep at 17-20C and seedlings emerge in 2-3 weeks.  Pot on and plant out after the last frost or in the following spring.

Grow Plants form a rosette of leaves in the first season and grow flower stalks in the second season.  Cut back the flower stalks later in summer once they have died back.  A rosette of evergreen leaves sometimes remains over winter and the plants may flower for another one or two seasons.  They often self-seed, but not necessarily in the same flower colour.
