Sowing, Seeds, Planting Sow under cover May - July on compost surface, do not cover. Transplant to 7.5cm pots, grow on and harden off before late summer, early autumn planting in final flowering position or can sow direct. Foxgloves will grow in most soils (except very wet or very dry) but prefer fertile soil in a semi-shaded spot. To help plants establish sprinkle mycorrhizal fungi (Rootgrow) into the base of the planting hole. Allow good spacing between plants to aid air circulation and help prevent mildew. See our advice pages for a guide to sowing and growing foxgloves.
Care Tips They self seed freely but some will revert to the wild colour form. Pull out any seedlings with red stems if you want them to remain pure. May need staking. Remove the first flower spike early to encourage more 'prince' flowers from the base. Caution: All parts of the plant are highly toxic if ingested.
Flowering 1 year from sowing seed

The plants arrived when expected and made good initial growth but only one of them flowered at all and that was very small. Will they flower next year?
Very disappointed with them.

I was a little disappointed with how they had been packed - they were very delicate plants and somehow some of the leaves had been stuck down in the packaging and stems had become broken which was a shame but they did recover and are now strong plants hopefully will flower next year
