They may do-they may not-you are doing the right thing-in the first year they to tend just to grow to get to flowering size-next year they should all flower.

Sorry to be so vague-but it it is a waiting game

Hi Lynne

What size were they and are you growing them on somewhere warm. I often find that the plugs were smaller than I expected . If you can get them somewhere warm that will help but then you will have to harden them off.

thanks lazy gardener and cris, they are not very about 5-6 leaves on them, there is 6 of each, and for now i have just put them in 4 big pots, they seem happy enough, well at least they havent died on me ha ha

If the digitalis are this year's seeds they're unlikely to flower until next year.

No Lynne they won't flower this year
Just grow them on for good plants next year
