Foxglove query

AnniDAnniD Posts: 9,550
Checking through the coldframe l have come across some foxgloves. They are pretty small, in 3 inch pots, but roots are showing through. 
I'm wondering if l plant them out, will they flower this year ? I have usually planted much bigger plants out in Autumn for flowering the following Spring. 
Many thanks for any advice  :)


  • I don't think they will as they need 2 years to reach flowering size. But you have had success with autumn planting and flowering the next spring so give it a go.

    I have some similar. I am going to just drop them in gaps by the shrubs.  I suspect they will be small flowering and later than their brethren that got planted in Autumn.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
