Description

The "Toadflax" is an old and ever-popular, very long-flowering cottage garden plant, which usually has tall, slender flower spikes of violet-purple. We have mixed a generous quantity of a selection of seeds which will produce either icing pink, white or violet-purple flowers. (We appreciate these are not actually in red, white and blue, but this is the nearest we could manage!) These plants will continue to flower right into the frosts of autumn, after which time they will gently self-seed into places they like, but will never become a nuisance! Ideal for gently sprinkling where required!

Sowing Advice

Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring to benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly with sand or fine grit to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take very many months to appear, so please never discard the pot or tray. You may also just gently sprinkle where required.
