Yes, keep us informed
Tip for foxgloves, don't sow all your seeds this year. They are biennials, so they won't flower this year, but will next, then they should self seed, but those won't flower for a year, so you'll have a year gap (if that riddle made sense)..
Therefore so half seeds this year, and do the same again next year so you have both 1 and 2 year old plants in the garden. After that they should get their own flowering/seeding cycle going.
Hi WoF, that's good to hear apart from thelck of bees. Don't be scred of the cow parsley.When it stops looking pretty take most of the seed heads off. The hogweed is worse, it has such bigleaves.
I can stop it spreading further if I don't let it seed but i should have done that years ago.
WoF - sounds like your meadow is really coming along - great news.
Nut - I took your advice last year and planted patches of yellow rattle seed to try and subdue the grass in my meadow. These have all taken (yippee ) so am expecting the yellow flowers very soon. The question is, what next ? Do i plant plugs of wildflowers in the rattle patches, or do I leave them to get going and not plant anything else til next year ?? I know you are the expert - sorry for nicking someone else's thread - but it is wildflower related !
I'd start some plants for the meadow now and grow them onto something larger than a plug to plant out after the last mow. The YR will seed itself but you can collect some and spread it to exactly where you want it.
