Digitalis purpurea ‘Pam’s Choice’
PAM’S CHOICE FOXGLOVE

Digitalis purpurea ‘Pam’s Choice’ is one of the best new foxgloves found in recent years.
Thank heavens Pam did not weed it out before she spotted the wonderfully marked flowers.

Large white bells with deep burgundy splashed throats

Because ‘Pam’s Choice’ bears large white bells, with densely speckled and splashed throats of deep burgundy.
The flower spires are elegant and stoutly strong.
Flowering begins in spring and goes into the summer months.

Wonderful tall statement, rarely requires staking & great cut

And the impressive spires also make excellent cut flowers (but get our your biggest best vase).
Because Digitalis purpurea ‘Pam’s Choice’ is a very big cut above normal Foxgloves

Perfect under trees & shrubs or at the back

Pam’s Choice enjoys Full Sun to Shade, in well drained soil.
She is perfect in drifts under trees and shrubs.
And will obligingly form a natural drift for you by self-seeding each year – so leave a few spires standing to go to seed each season, or cut them down when the seed pods have dried and lay them on the ground where you want your drift.

Flower spires 1.5m High x 60cm. Wide evergreen foliage clump.

SEED SOWING ADVICE: QUICK & EASY
Suitable for beginners & gardening with kids

Digitalis seeds can be scattered directly in the garden in early spring to germinate naturally / or for reliable germination of maximum quantity then sow indoors at any time.

INDOORS: Sow Digitalis seeds on surface of good quality compost or seed raising mix at any time.
But do not cover with compost as seed requires light to germinate.

Then thoroughly moisten the mic by standing the sown punnet in a shallow water bath.
And allow the moisture to percolate to the surface from below.

Now place in a warm, well-lit  place.
You can use a heat mat if you have one, but it is not essential, as these seeds are willing germinators.
And cover with a plastic lid to retain moisture.

We recommend germinating at 15-20 degrees C.

Continue to keep moist at all times by misting from a spray water bottle, but do not saturate.

Germination occurs in 14 to 21 days approx.

Pot on seedlings to harden off and mature before finally planting out in the garden.

SEED COUNT: 250 seeds per pack approx.
(We always aim to exceed the stated seed count, and give a generous serve).
