Foxglove 'Illumination Pink'
Thought to be an impossible hybridisation, this is the most spectacular foxglove you will have ever seen! Parentage from the little-known Isoplexis (Canary Island Foxglove) gives this exciting new Digitalis its fabulous tropical colouring. Being completely sterile Foxglove ‘Illumination’ won’t set seed, giving it an incredibly long flowering period. Unlike most foxgloves which are generally biennial, this half-hardy semi-evergreen is a true perennial so you will be able to enjoy its flowers for years to come. The exotic looking blooms are densely packed on sturdy stems, with many side branches, making a striking addition to summer borders. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Strawberry 'Christine' (Misted Tip) (Early Season)
Fragaria x ananassa
An early season variety, Strawberry 'Christine' produces large, juicy sweet fruit from disease resistant plants. Cropping periods can also be brought forward or extended if you are growing them in a greenhouse or polytunnel. Height: 20cm (8”). Spread: 30cm (12”).
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 4-8 months.
Our 'misted tip' plants are cell raised, enabling them to establish quicker than traditional bare root strawberry plants. Increasingly used by the commercial growers, Thompson & Morgan is pleased to bring this strawberry growing development to home gardeners. As a result you will get not only a faster established strawberry crop, but also a more plentiful crop producing up to 100% more fruit in the first year, compared to planting bare root runners.
