VERBASCUM BLATTARIA ALBA
Slender spikes of purple-eyed white flowers arise from rosettes of glossy, crinkly dark green leaves. This plant is an absolute must for every cottage garden where it may gently self-seed into gravel or empty corners but is never a problem.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
