Foxglove seedlings ....when will they flower?

Posted: 29/08/2015 at 16:22

I sowed some foxglove seeds this May, and have pricked out seedlings into their own little pots....they are happily romping away

I know they are biennial, but does that mean they will flower for me in 2016 or 2017?

many thanks

Rain stopped play here. But not before I got quite a lot done.  Very pleased with my first "Kefidget" delphinium to flower .....seeds from KEF, from an original Fidget plant ......

 Think I might register for PBR

My first was a red mini metro - numberplate had a 747 in it, so it was always affectionately known as Jumbo.  Bought it second hand from my Mum - I paid in instalments ....their interest rates were better than the banks.  I loved that car
