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).
|Great Mullein, Aaron's Rod, Torches|
|This wildflower forms rosettes of grey-green, wooly leaves from which very tall spikes of clear yellow flowers grow in summer. Not only has this wildflower been used as a herbal remedy for thousands of years but dye can be extracted from it and the dried flower spikes can be made into torches by dipping them in molten wax, which might be fun to try!|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Sow thinly in desired flowering position from mid-summer to autumn, barely covering with soil. Thin young plants to a foot apart. The plants will develop into ground-hugging rosettes, producing tall flower spikes the following year. Grows best in full sun, but will tolerate part shade.|
