Great Mullein is a tall upright species and in gardens can be included as a backdrop to a flower border. Plants produce spikes of yellow flowers from June to August.

How to grow Great Mullein Seeds
Great Mullein seeds should be sown in autumn, outside, where they are to flower, and covered lightly with compost. Great Mullein seeds can occasionally be somewhat erratic to germinate. This species is a biennial so flowering will not normally occur until the second season, after sowing. To attain continuous flowering each year, seeds would need to be sown in 2 successive seasons.
