Thanks for the information, the foxgloves are nearly the same size as the ones in the garden that were grown from seed earlier this year.They seem to relatively free from slug/snail damage.
Interesting that you are going to over winter the delphiniums, I was wondering if they would survive. The ones I have had in the garden, didn't stand a chance this year.
If I overwinter them will they keep growing green foilage? I thought as perennials they would die back in the winter, when the frost arrive, and then come through again & flower the next year. Would they behave that way overwintered in a cold frame or potting shed?
