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.

I bought a whole bunch of plug plants and tubers in Spring, all for a clients cutting garden. I grew the plant on until they were 2/3Litre pot size. The plants were all good, strong and sturdy and I only have two that died off in around 275 plants. I was dissappointed with the dahlias though as the not all came true as per the label. I certainly didnt get the Labyrinth that I ordered.

My absolute favourites - I grow them every year and they reliably flower their socks off for ages and ages. I wouldn’t say they were as quite tall as the description, but perhaps that’s just because I pinch them out so much when they’re young so that they grow to be really bushy and have more flower heads.

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.
