Flummoxed by foxglove!!

Posted: 18/05/2014 at 07:00

I had a foxglove last year with amazing variegated leaves - I contacted the RHS who said that if any of it's seedlings had the same leaves they'd be interested - so far the seedlings are all plain green, but if I remember correctly the original one didn't show variegation until it's second year, so I shall keep watching out.  

I think that foxgloves are pretty susceptible to genetic blips.  I had a couple of others last year that grew second flower spikes out of the top of the first ones - very odd.

Good morning KEF   

Mr Dove made a fantastic chicken jalfrezi and pilau rice - he used Bhaji man spice kits - Bhaji man lives nearby and they've just started stocking them at the farm shop - he challenged OH to cook me a curry and he did the first one a fortnight ago and really enjoyed it (he's never enjoyed cooking before) and the other day announced he was going to cook another!  I'm not complaining   The packs contain all the spices in little packets and the instructions are so clear about what to add and when and how to prep everything, even an OH can do it!   He's got to report back to Bhaji man how he got on - he'd been given clear instructions - even about lighting candles!!!
