Pot up plants and grow them on in frost free conditions until all risk of frost has passed. When plants are well grown, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before transplanting into borders and containers. The herbaceous perennials in this collection can be grown in any moist, fertile soil, in sun or semi shade. Work some compost or general fertiliser into the top 20cm of the soil prior to planting.
In autumn, cut back the old foliage to ground level and apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plants. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of perennials in autumn to maintain their vigour. Caution: Contact with Foxgloves may irritate the skin and eyes, and are toxic if eaten.

Posted on 1 June, perfectly packed and marked. Arrived on 4th early afternoon. Five already dead; digitalis in bad condition but I gave it a chance - will see after couple of days.

I planted all my plug plants and all doing well. However, I put my pots outside in warm sun on first day of planting and when I checked them in the afternoon I noticed the birds had attacked them and removed one plug completely, (which I found on the ground) and they had pecked at all the greenery of the others. Strangely they only pecked at my digitalis mixed, (foxglove) so I shall have to replace to restock the bed if they dont recover.
