Hi all,

Just got the planting, growing, looking proudly at my plant pots bug.....

But what did I plant?  In 2 plant pots I seem to have bought some seeds without my glasses on.....

What on earth did I plant?  Seed packet gone....imageimage

Other pots are proudly sporting Marigolds, Tomatoes etc. but these resemble young Triffids!

Can anyone assist?

Many thanks

Henk

    Foxgloves by the look of them.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Wow, that was FAST!  You guys are so responsive & professional!

    My leaves look very much bigger than photos I can find of Foxgloves, I hope they are not:-

    Feel the leaves.

    If they feel soft and downy most likely foxgloves.
    If thy're rough, maybe alkanet

    Soft and silky!  Phew!  Amazing size though as I have Foxgloves in the garden which are you know, normal size, with normal size leaves, but these are GIANT!

    Wife most relieved our 4 year old will not wake to a Giant Sunflower in his window.......

    Really appreciate it!
