Extremely attractive to bumblebees. Digitalis purpurea self-seeds freely and will quickly naturalise in the garden.

Grow in moist but well-drained soil in sun to shade. Allow plants to seed before cutting back the flowering stem – this may encourage a second flush of blooms to grow.

TOXIC if eaten. Wear gloves and other protective equipment when handling.

Our packaging is made from FSC recycled cardboard and environmentally friendly inks. The seed bags are waxed paper or compostable starch to keep seeds in the best condition during storage.
