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
It is a hardy deciduous tree with an open rounded habit. The brown-felted flower buds are conspicuous throughout the winter but in exposed gardens may be damaged by late frosts. The foxglove-like blooms (hence the common name) are held in erect panicles, but will not form until the trees has established.

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.
