Foxglove 'Primrose Carousel'

Digitalis purpurea

Hardy Biennial

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. Seed of the first plant of this unique yellow was discovered by chance in Suffolk by T&M customer, Miss Gage. T&M breeders have bred for dwarfness, colour and flowers all around the stem. The result is a gorgeous new garden plant. Ideal for containers or exposed situations where Foxgloves would normally falter. Also sensational when planted in drifts in the cottage garden border.

patio, cottage gardens, wildlife gardens, cut flower garden, woodland garden

Sow early summer to mid winter at 18-20C (65-70F) 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 60cm (24in) apart in sun or part shade on ordinary garden soil.

An early sowing will often produce flowers in the same year.
