Foxglove - Primrose Carousel
This is the first primrose yellow Foxglove coming true from seed, which has the exciting bonus of large claret-speckled flowers which are borne all around the stem, a unique attribute in foxgloves. Plants are approximately 30in high, therefore remarkably dwarf. T&M breeders have bred for dwarfness, colour and flowers all around the stem and the result is a gorgeous new garden plant, ideal for containers or exposed situations where Foxglove -s would normally falter. Also sensational when planted in drifts in the cottage garden border.
Sow early summer to mid-winter at 18-20C in a good seed compost. Do not cover the seed with compost. Germination usually takes 15-30 days. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow on in cooler conditions. Plant out 6cm apart in sun or part shade on ordinary garden soil. An early sowing will often produce flowers in the same year.
