Digitalis purpurea - ‘Apricot’


A hardy biennial bearing large, stately spires of apricot flowers, loved by butterflies and bees.


Sow seeds thinly from March - May in seed trays. Do not cover the seeds as they need light to germinate, but press lightly into the compost and keep moist. Place in a greenhouse or cold frame.


Prick out seedlings when large enough to handle and grow on to plant out in early autumn for flowering the following year, spacing 60cm apart.


A useful cottage garden plant, in the border in sun or partial shade and ideal for cutting.


Height 90-120cm.
