Hi, I am lucky enough to have self setting fox gloves each year. After they are spent do I up root the whole plant and discard and rely on new self set plants for next year or do I cut to the original plant that flowered this year at the base and leave in for next year or does it die off?
Some will start new shoots at the base, but as others have said the main plants look a bit scruffy. All the fresh new seedlings look better and you can move them if you want them some place else. I also think the new seedlings produce stronger healthier plants.
