How to Grow Verbascum Snowy Spires

Want to add timeless beauty to your garden? Look no further than Verbascum Snowy Spires! This majestic perennial boasts towering white blooms, perfect for attracting pollinators and adding summer colour with winter charm. Let’s learn how to grow this easy-care beauty!

Growing from Seed:

  • Indoors (January-April): Plant seeds in deep pots filled with seed compost, keeping them moist and shaded at room temperature.
  • Outdoors (July-August): Sow directly where you want them to bloom for flowers next year.

Nurturing Seedlings:

  • Indoor seedlings: Once sprouted, gradually introduce them to sunlight and cooler temperatures. Plant outdoors (45cm apart) when frost risk is gone.
  • Outdoor seedlings: Keep the soil moist and remove weeds gently. Thin seedlings to ensure healthy growth.

Caring for Your Spiky Beauties:

  • Water: Give them regular drinks, especially during dry spells, but avoid overwatering.
  • Sunlight: They’re happy in full sun or partial shade.
  • Food: While not essential, a light spring feeding can encourage more blooms.
  • Deadheading: Regularly remove spent flowers to keep your Verbascum looking neat and promote new blooms.
  • Winter: Cut back stems in late autumn or early spring, leaving the basal rosette for winter interest.

Bonus Tips:

  • Deadhead often for a continuous flower show.
  • Divide established clumps every 3-4 years (spring or autumn) to maintain their vigor.
  • Enjoy the long-lasting blooms in your summer bouquets!

Embrace the timeless beauty and effortless care of Verbascum Snowy Spires. With this guide, you’ll be well on your way to growing a stunning summer display that lasts through winter!
