|Foxglove tree - Paulownia tomentosa|
The Foxglove tree - Paulownia tomentosa, is amongst the grandest of all ornamental flowering trees. And while it can be a difficult plant to source, foxglove tree seeds are now for sale at the 'Seeds of Eaden' seed shop.
|Foxglove tree seedlings|
Sow foxglove seeds in a large modular seed tray containing, in equal part by volume, fine grade moss peat and horticultural sand in a cold frame in March and April. When the seedlings are large enough to handle, carefully 'pop' them out of their modules and without disturbing the rootball pot them on into 3 inch pots containing a good quality compost such as John Innes 'No 1'.
Once the root system has established in the pots they can be hardened off before being set out into a nursery bed and grown on for a further 2-3 years. When ready, plant your foxglove tree in a sunny sheltered position in a deep, well-drained, loamy soil.
