I would start to move them all outside, here the nights are mild are at the moment.

I don't have a greenhouse and grow annuals as well as other things, they do take off when it's warmer so plently of time to enjoy the flowers. If you've grown  the foxgloves from seed it's unlikely that they will flower this year as they are biennual so they will flower next year

What did you do in your garden today?

Potted on some verbenas and poppies and planted out some wallflowers and forget me nots

Potted on some today into small cubes, they had quite a bit of root on them.......so a lot easy to do than I expected.

What sort of conditions did they self seed artjak? I'm hoping that mine will do the same
