Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, toxic if eaten.

Sow January to May. Sow seed on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed compost and place at a temperature of 18-29C (65-85F). Lightly cover the seed with vermiculite. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 14-30 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination.

Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into trays or 7.5cm (3in) pots. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 45-60cm (18-24in) apart.

Summer King! 2012-06-27

2 years on having grown from seed, they shine at last; even if the sun doesn't! I have had these against the backdrop of T&M's Verbascum 'Clemantine' and they really stand out, with multi flowered stems pushing their way out to find any light they can. The flowers are huge for Digitalis' and thanks to their numerous stems there are planty of them. And, yes, the write ups correct, the bees love them!
