POT'S GROWING ON? 13/01/23
Interesting to read about your giant Mullein.
We had four self-sown plants appear in our garden last Spring. I transplanted them to another bed, where they had space to grow.
Around mid summer, we found one plant covered in blue and yellow caterpillars (Mullein moth), as we discovered. So I netted the plant to stop them demolishing all four and allowed them to munch away happily.
After they had gone to ground, I removed the netting and the plant grew and flowered again, albeit a smaller version. We're hoping the plants grow again this year.
If the verbascum is anything like the verbascums that self-seed here in our French garden it will run to seed as quickly as it flowers and will look pretty scraggy from beginning to end. Statuesque yes. Scraggy yes!
