I sowed some seeds in June and have planted out dozens upon dozens of fox glove plants and still have more to find spaces for.I took the seed from the previous plants and they have all taken and grown well.The slugs don't seem to care for them but my collie dog is in the dog house for digging up some I planted earlier.They are so easy to grow and look fantastic in groups .

Tea has tannin in it and is good for plants in small dose.I put it on my camilas as they are bushes.also the tea bags around roses or small shurbs (not pretty)keeps them moist and feeds them.And have a cuppa yourself.
