  • Lets talk about them



    I adore toadflax (again what is with the ugly names?). I first discovered toadflax last year in a wild flower mix (albeit in highlighter yellow and neon purple). As I swooned over the delightful whimsical blooms and my girls relished these little ‘fairy flowers’ I absolutely knew I had to find a variety worthy of being a cut flower. Say hello to Toadflax Canon Went, long strong stems rippling with pale pink flowers reminiscent of miniature snapdragons. Wonderful vase life, and a perennial too – an absolute must grow.

    How: Surface sow and lightly cover with vermiculite, keep moist. Vernalisation required for flowering.

    Where: Full Sun

    Pick: When the first few flowers are open. 7days+ vase life




  • Notes From The Garden



    Drought hardy once established and requires little attention. Will happily self-seed so dead head if you do not want self-seeded plants. Germination can be a little erratic so do not discard sowed seeds hastily.
