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: Toxic if eaten, irritant to skin and eyes.

  1. From small plants...

    By Peter Humphrey 17-08-2012

    The plants or should I say plantlets, they were tiny and I must admit I wondered if they would come to anything arrived through the letterbox!. Well I planted them up and have just replanted them and seperated several plants, this is after just three weeks. I have ended up with twenty four instead of twelve very healthy plants which by next spring should be a very good size.Don't be worried if you too receive tiny plants because they like so many have grown to a good and healthy size.I will let you know what happens next year.
