Foxglove illumination advice please!

Posted: 02/03/2013 at 11:08
Hi all, advice needed again I'm afraid! Ive got 6 foxglove illumination 'super plugs' that arrived about ten days ago. I've followed the instructions, planted them immediately in 9cm pots using John nines no 2. So I watered them a bit and left them on a sunny window ledge. They looked great at first but have proceeded to get really crispy leaves, with some blackening! I'm worried I'm killing them before I'm even get them in the garden. I was thinking of putting them outside, but the instructions say I shouldn't plant them until risk of frost has gone, so a wee while off yet. I've now put them in my porch, it's less sunny, and cooler. Any advice would be much appreciated. I don't have a greenhouse or cold frame unfortunately, so it's either inside the house, or out in the cold. Thanks!

Thanks for the reply - maybe I was being a bit too literal?!

Hi all,

I'm quite new to gardening so please bear with me. I bought a load of 'garden ready' pansies and wallflower from a well known Jersey based plants company, and planted them all in October / November last year. I bought them because of the advertised 'flowers all winter long', but I've not seen a single threat of a flower on any of the 100 + plants I planted. They all look relitivley healthy, but are showing no signs of flowering.

Does anyone have any advice on this, I'd like to know whether there's any point buying these types of garden ready plugs again, indeed pansies in general. I was dying for some winter colour but feel a bit ripped off! Should I leave them be, assuming they will flower eventually, or shall I put it down to experience?
