Thompson & Morgan is delighted to work alongside the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew to offer special seed collections to home gardeners. Kew Wildflower Seeds have been specially selected by The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
A familiar sight in early summer growing wild in shady places in Britain. Tall spires of purple, thimble-like flowers above a low rosette of downy leaves. The flowers are adored by bumblebees. Allow these biennial wildflowers to self-sow so they can pop up randomly through borders and informal areas where their erect spires create useful vertical accents amongst the rounded forms of other perennials. Height: 120cm (47in). Spread: 45cm (18in).
1 Packet (2000 Seeds) (60549)
Transplant 60cm (24in) apart into flowering site in the autumn for flowering the following year.
Alternatively, sow the tiny seeds sparingly into seed trays using a fine seed compost. Do not cover the seed. Keep trays in a moist environment such as a plastic bag or propagator and do not allow them to dry out. When seedlings are large enough to handle, prick them out into 9cm pots and grow on.
Foxgloves will grow in most soils although they prefer acidic soils in part shade. These biennials will produce a low leaf rosette in their first year and flower the following summer. Sowing them two years in succession and allowing plants to self-seed will ensure a continuous display.

Thompson & Morgan strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3
