Fox Glove

Posted: 23/01/2015 at 12:52

All you need to do for English native foxgloves is scatter the seed where you want the plants to grow, and stand well back. 

Thin the seedlings out as they grow, transplanting those you gently ease out of the soil. 

There's no need for heat or even the protection of a cold greenhouse - they're tough as old boots and will grow happily in a suitable place.

Mulching over frozen ground keeps the cold in the soil.  I wouldn't mulch  at this time of year.  Either mulch in the autumn or the spring

Wesselton is gorgeous - its name is the old spelling of  the home village of the person who raised it - the pretty village of Westleton in Suffolk - near to where I used to live and close to where my son lives now

BL, you need a tall flagpole and a flag that can be seen for miles, then the cooker delivery van will be able to find you - we want a picture when it's happily ensconced in your kitchen
