Wild flower seeds grown and harvested from the Wilderness Tamed garden.

  • Description

    These stunning Mullien Verbascum thapsus seeds will brighten any bed or border in your garden. Verbascum prefer a sunny sight but will tolerate light shade as well complimenting other perennials in the border or along a hedge. Can also be grown in large pots. Verbascum grow to over 1 metre in height.
    Will seed readily and abundantly so we advise removing the flower stems once the flowers fade and before the seed pods ripen and burst open.
    Add to a mix of other wild flower seeds to create a Native Meadow of Bee & Insect Friendly Garden Perennials.

     

    See the Wilderness Tamed store for other Wild Flower Seeds.

     

    Verbascum also called Mullien are a good source of nectar to many pollinating insects and bees and will attract lots of wild life to your garden.
    You can sow these Verbascum Wild Flower seeds as soon as you get them directly into the ground where you want them to grow. Do not add compost or fertiliser to the ground as, like most native meadow plants, they do not require a nutrient rich soil. Firm lightly in and water regularly during dry weather to help establish the young plants.
