In 2012 Walberton Nursery saw huge success with the first ever sales of Digitalis ‘Illumination Pink’ in a 3 litre pot. The innovative new variety won Best Plant in Show at Chelsea Flower Show in 2012 and although a Thompson & Morgan bred variety, Walberton was the only producer of the new Digitalis in a 3 litre pot format for that year.
Along with the ‘Pink’ we are now very excited to be on the brink of selling Digitalis ‘Illumination Raspberry’ and ‘Illumination Chelsea Gold’ (Apricot) for the first time this month. Although slightly later than anticipated with the poor start to the season we hope that these two new varieties, which are only available through The Farplants Group in a 3 litre pot, will fly off the shelves to bring some much needed colour to late spring gardens.
Of these two new varieties Marc Jones, General Manager said, “We only have limited numbers of these new colours available and we know they’ll be in high demand.”
