PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Foxglove 'Silver Cub'
Type/Hardiness Annual, Biennial, Hardy
Flowering period June-September
Height 24-36in/.60-90cm
Light preference Sun, Part shade
Soil preference Any reasonable, well-drained soil
Sowing time/depth Jan-Feb/May-Aug, Surface
The beautiful white flower spikes of this variety are enhanced by the foliage, which is covered in fine white hairs, giving a silvery appearance and silky to the touch. Can be grown as an annual, flowering in its first year if sown in January or February.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Early sowings should flower in their first year. Sow thinly in a cool greenhouse or cold frame, on the surface of a pot or module of good quality compost, covering with a fine sprinkling of sifted compost or vermiculite. Do not exclude light, which is necessary for germination. Pot seedlings on and plant out when large enough. Make sure that the plants receive enough moisture, particularly if in sunny positions. Cutting back the central stem when the flowers are spent should encourage further flower spikes to develop as side shoots. Unless you wish to allow the plants to self seed, cut back all flower spikes when flowering is over.
