Digitalis are quintessential cottage garden plants and Camelot Mix is a pretty mix of jewel-like colours, including white, pink, cream and lavender, reaching a height of around 120cm. Because they are more columnar than widely spreading, they work well planted towards the back of the border to set off other mid-size plants. The nectar-filled flowers are attractive to bees and other pollinating insects in the summer months and the blooms also make eye-catching cut flowers for arrangements and displays.

The most economical way to purchase your plants. Securely rooted, strong plants in mini-plugs of compost. Will need to be transplanted and grown on before planting out ready to flower. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 2.6cm deep x 1.8cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm-5cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.
Delphiniums, Digitalis and Lupins are quintessential cottage garden plants reaching up to heady heights of around 50-60cms (depending on the variety) and are more columnar than widely spreading, so they work really well planted towards the back of the border to set off other mid-size plants. They also make eye-catching cut flowers for arrangements and displays.
Special requirements - Slugs love to munch on emerging young shoots of Delphiniums and Lupins. If you can deter them without the use of slug pellets, all the better, but if you have to, sprinkle pellets around the base of the plants. You will need to reapply after rainfall.
As most of our varieties are tall, they will probably need staking and tying in as they grow during the season so that any windy weather doesn’t blow them over.
Expensive, minute plug plants, will have to wait about 18 months to see any flowers. I was shocked how tiny they were, more like a tray of seedlings I could have grown myself for a quarter of the cost.
Thank you for your email. Our apologises again and hope we have dealt with this mater to your satisfaction.
Excellent quality plants, well packaged and delivered on time. Will definitely only be ordering my plants from Brookside Nursery in the future,
Tiny plug plants arrived, some had fallen out of container and got broken but managed to save most of them. Others planted up and growing well now
Plug plants arrived exactly as shown in photo.Easy to order, pick delivery week and great communication throughout the purchase process. Looking forward to Summer
Plug plants were very wet, soft & fragile & haven't survived being potted on.
Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that the plants havent survived and have now emailed you to see if we can help further.
Unlike the lavender plug plants these were a little worse for wear when they arrived. They had been a little bashed about in the shipping process. I have decided to leave them in the greenhouse to grow on a little bit before putting them in pots. I hope they will be ok.
Plugs were very small, difficult to get plants out without damaging them
Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that these are were small and do ask that you get in touch if they have not thrived.
