Digitalis Limoncello is a new foxglove bred by our colleague Maarten van der Saar. Both delicate and striking with its luminous pale yellow flowers, 'Limoncello' was Chelsea Plant of the Year finalist at this years flower show.

Our Digitalis varieties should be sown in September/October for flowers next spring. Sow on the surface of moistened compost and place inside a propagator or cover with a sheet of glass or plastic in a warm spot. Keep a close eye on the seed tray and bring into a shady pace and keep moist after germination. It will take about three weeks to see some evidence of germination. When the plants are large enough to handle transplant into small pots and grow on in a cold greenhouse or cold frame.
