Great news artjak, looking foward to seeing the verbs flower. I know what the seedlings look like as well

I would sow them Jigsaw Gill, mine were a very early sowing and it sounds like they grow a lot in in warm temperatures

I'm right in thinking that PVA is glue that dries clear? Mines more of a tie dye (splodgy) finish, but I'm pleased with it. Also had a go at decorating flip flops

The pot looks good Fairygirl, I've been to a crafts taster today and painted a small one. Does the PVA act as a base coat?

I've used wood chip as a mulch in my woodland area which are beech trees, along pathways, between paving stones. I have use it on a bed as well, not sure about the vegatables though. Great that you have such a constant surply

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

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
