More Details

There’s something honest and magnificent about a beautiful great armful and vase of our native wild foxgloves. I love growing them for parties, weddings and friends in May or June. And they are very easy!

Genus Digitalis
Group/Species purpurea
Type Biennial or Short-lived Perennial
Common Name Common Foxglove
Border Position Cutting Garden
Soil Type Broad Tolerance
Site Part Shade
Moisture Moist but Well-drained

Spacing 45cm (18in)
Sowing, Seeds, Planting Sow under cover March-July on compost surface, do not cover. Plant out once roots have filled a small pot, spacing 45cm apart.
Care Tips Remove the first flower spike early to encourage more 'prince' flowers from the base. May require protection from severe frost. Caution: All parts of the plant are highly toxic if ingested.
Flowering May - July, the following year from sowing.
Vase Life As you cut, sear stem ends for 10 seconds, then put them in a deep bucket of warm water and leave for several hours before arranging. Remove any flowers hanging by the stigma. Wear gloves or wash hands after handling as all parts of the foxglove are highly toxic if ingested.
