Any ideas what has happened to my foxglove?

It's called fasciation and is caused by damage to the growing tip.  It doesn't harm the plant

Name please

could it be Butterbur, (Petasites), it spreads very easily and flowers in spring when very few if any leaves are evident.

They are not frost hardy which is a problem over winter but during the summer (if we ever get one) you can put them outside

Don't bother with carrots until the soil has been improved for a couple of years, they just won't grow well from my experience

Kate my cator oil plants struggled and then when about 12 inches high developed flowers.  I cut these off and repotted and suddenly they have sprung into life and are now double the size.  Repotting in a different compost may be the answer.
