hi everyone, i hope this isnt a silly question, i planted some foxgloves in september, i dont know what type they are, but they have long pointed leaves and the slugs loved them, but i managed to save them (out at night with a torch ha ha) my question is, they have new shoots coming from the middle that look nice and healthy, but the ouside leaves are lying on the soil and dont look verry happy, they look like they are rotting, do i cut them off or leave them, i have always wanted to grow foxgloves, i would hate to loose them, i also have the other type with more rounded leaves, they seem fine, any advice would be appreciated, thanks

hi gracie, hope i have took the cutting right, i have cut just below the leaf node, they are about 6inchs long, and ihave left a few new leaves on them, i also put them on the side of the pot, does that sound right?

hi christopher, thanks for advise,yes they are long flowering, and i had butterflies i have never had before, i got them from TM they are supposed to be small enough for large pots, but i think they will be better in the garden so i will move them next spring, the cuttings are for my family, thanks again

thanks for the tip gracie5, i bought 3 buddleja buzz fromTM this year, i put 1 in the garden and the other 2 in large pots outside my front door, the 1 in the garden looks really neat but the 2 in pots look a bit of a mess although very healthy, also the 2 in pots i have to water every other day, i can see them from my living room and it is lovely seeing them full of butterflies and bees, but i will take your tip and take acutting for my mum, thanks again
