Hi. Hope somebody can help identify this plant. It came up last year, no flowers, leaves as much 12 inches in lenght and the spread was approx two and a half foot. Height about eighteen to twentyfour inches.
Bet it has flowers like this very soon -
Thank you Dovefromabove, will not dig it up then and wait for the flowers.
If it's not a foxglove it could be comfrey, they look very similar. Time will tell!
My foxglove leaves are a bit furrier, I'd go for comfrey, but hard to tell at this stage.
Could we have a picture of the whole plant? It sometimes helps to see the habit.
OK will do it tomorrow. Thanks
If it has a long tap root, it's comfrey - if so, cut off all the leaves, pop in a plastic bucket cutting the lid off so it sits inside, stick a brick on top, leave for 3 weeks , and hey presto, liquid manure. Stinks a bit but dilute 1:10 with water and use it for rasps, apples, and other fruit .
If it's foxglove, enjoy the flowers but don't cut the leaves off.
Hi Landgirl100. Hope this helps thanks for your interest.
Thanks, looks a nice little border. Foxglove is still the best bet, let's hope it puts up a flower spike soon!
