Cultivation Advice PERENNIAL FLOWER DIGITALIS ELSIE KELSEY

CAUTION: All parts of this plant are poisonous if ingested.

  • Sow undercover: March to May or Sow directly outdoors in  May to June or September to October
  • Sow under cover in good free draining seed compost, just covering the seed with compost.
  • Germination usually takes 10-21 days at 13-15C (55-60F).
  • When the seedlings are large enough to handle transplant into boxes, grow cool and finally plant out 30cm (12in) apart in sun or part shade in free draining soil.
  • The easiest method is to sow in late spring/early summer outdoors gently raked into a well prepared seed bed. Transplanted when large enough to final flowering position.
  • The seed can be scattered sparingly for a more natural look, directly into the flowering position although germination is likely to be poorer.
