Foxglove 'Dalmation Mixed'

Digitalis purpurea

Hardy Biennial

Digitalis 'Dalmatian Mixed' looks magnificent in cottage gardens and woodland borders - but thanks to their uniform branching habit, these statuesque foxgloves make fabulous annual bedding too! These short lived perennials will happily seed about to create dramatic drifts and attract wildlife to their nectar rich flowers. Height: 50cm (20"). Spread: 40cm (16").

Pot up digitalis plants and grow them on in frost free conditions for transplanting outdoors later on. When plants are well-grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days, before planting them in borders and containers in sun or partial shade. Although foxgloves prefer a fertile, moist soil, they will happily tolerate almost any soil except those that are excessively dry or waterlogged.
Water foxglove plants regularly until fully established. Foxgloves self-seed freely. If seedlings are not wanted, deadhead stems of foxglove flowers as the blooms fade. In autumn, cut back old stems to encourage plenty of new side shoots.

Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, toxic with eaten.

  1. honesty

    By Philip Douglas 10-05-2015

    I had been expecting plug plants 5-8cm - these should be advertised as micro plugs - a bit of honestly in your description would be appreciated.

  2. Bitterly disappointed!!

    By J A HILL 26-04-2015

    I was bitterly disappointed and feeling mislead, I was expecting quote (what's this?) 6-8cm plug plants to arrive by the end of May (why not sooner?) "as now is not the most suitable planting time. It will be delivered..... just the right time for planting" they arrived 17/4/15 barely 12mm and needing potting on. I telephoned regarding this and had my comments dismissed and eventually a £5 voucher was offered which added to my dissatisfaction as It wasn't why I phoned up. I am genuinely not one for complaining. I have always been more than happy with my purchases and this is why I am so disappointed and leaving this review.
