More Details

Antirrhinum 'White Giant' is a giant, pure-white snapdragon, excellent growing with Cosmos 'Purity'. It makes a statuesque and beautiful cut flower.

Snapdragons are invaluable plants for their full flower spikes, which last well over a week in water. We sell the elegant, single-colour, tall florist's varieties, which are now very difficult to find.

You can over-winter these in a cold frame, for huge, early flowers in May, or just sow in early spring for picking in summer and autumn. These varieties have also all been bred for good rust resistance.

Poor germination. Second packet of seeds that have failed. Not down to me as many other customers say the same on social media.

Glossy catalogue not enough. I want an excellent product at reasonable price.

Sadly I bought 3 packets of seeds all of which failed. I have grown these for the past two,years with great results. However the Customer Care team were brilliant and I received a full refund. Will try again next spring

The plants did not come up as Giant as I expected. They are roughly the same size as the other antirrhinums I planted. May have had something to do with poor growing conditions this year, but a little disappointing.

I bought these seeds last year and thought the resulting plants were stunning. This year I had a pleasant surprise, because they have self-seeded and I have an even better display than last year. Highly delighted!

Love It! Love It! Love It!

It was my first time growing these. I rarely grow plants from seeds however these were easy to germinate. They are currently flowering their little socks off. They are absolutely gorgeous. Not sure if it was mine but I had to provide some support for the plants but the flower stems are very sturdy. I have already bought a packet of seeds to grow next year.

This is my second year of growing Antirrhinum 'White Giant'. I love it in the garden and in the vase. It hasn't bent over despite some windy weather earlier in the year. I highly recommend it.

This is my first time growing these and they have been absolutely beautiful. Easy to grow and remained statuesque in the cutting patch I created in my daughter's garden without support. Would highly recommend them. I even got a second place at my village show!
