They grew very tall with nice heads on them but the heads were a little small for the height I thought, but the snails loved the stems. !! They ate all the green part of the stems leaving them white and were quite a sight if you ventured out at night as they dangled on the stems like decorations !!.

I ordered Foxgloves in early Spring, hoping to get one year old plants that would flower this year. In early Summer the plants had still not arrived: I rang up, and was assured they would arrive and be flowering this year (clearly the person had no idea about plants!). They arrived eventually and were of course small plants with no sign of a flower spike. Hopefully they will flower next year. Might as well have ordered seeds. They gave me a refund but the whole things was an irritation.

Good bulbs arrived, good planting instructions. Flowers were as shown on the website. Seed heads still standing tall in my garden. Very happy

Flower after tulips and before lots of other perennials. Insects love them. Structurally they are beautiful, both when growing, in flower, and in seed.
