Pure white nodding bells along tall, graceful stems make 'Alba' a must grow. An old fashioned classic, foxglove is popular in cottage style gardens. Stems are covered in charming, nodding blooms. A favourite among pollinators. A beautiful addition to the garden or floral arrangement. 

Plant type: biennial 

Height: 36-48”

Planting depth: surface sow 

Exposure: part sun

Approx seeds per packet: 200

How to sow:

Sow seeds from late spring to early summer. Do not cover seeds as light is required for germination. Plant outdoors a minimum of 6 weeks before last frost. Plants will overwinter and bloom the following spring. Pinching is not necessary.

Care:

While foxglove performs best in partial sun/shade, plants will also tolerate full sun with additional watering. Harvest cut flowers just as the first few flowers begin to open.
