White Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea f. albiflora)

In this Soto Masterclass, Max introduces the White Foxglove, which is also known as the Digitalis purpurea f. albiflora.

The White Foxglove loves to bask in the sun and provides elegant points of interest to the scheme. Loved by pollinators they are a focal point within a border.

Max explains that as a biennial the flowers have a two year life cycle, with flowers at their best in the second year. 

Watch Max demonstrate how to spread the seeds of the foxglove to grow more plants. He explains, when, how and where to cut the foxglove stem with secateurs and how to feed them with compost after. Max reveals this is a job which can be done into late Autumn.

This guide shows how to encourage a smaller second flush of flowers in the summer. Read the full Masterclass on pruning a foxglove here.
