I've had success with the montana ones taken last year, went to stick in the winter but started growing again

Seeds & cuttings on a windowsill

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 today into small cubes, they had quite a bit of root on 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

I've had several of the welsh poppies self seed here, they are pretty. I think they tend to disappear after they have flowered

I pinch out a lot of things once I think they plant is big enough, if i'm not sure I do a couple, have a look and usually do the rest. Just trying out the cornflowers and corncockles. I had good results last year from doing the same with snapdragons. I cut back some over wintered larkspurs and they bounced back

Hi Topbird, I'd give them a bit longer longer to perk up, sounds like you've done everything you can
