break23, at what time of year did you divide them?

Hi Matty2

Will you be bringing your pot in over the winter?

Hiya Verdun

Big difference in climate!

I've come to the conclusion that that my plants may have been a bit too immature to survive the winter but having said that I have plenty of small ordinary self seeded digitalis that have got through.

I think I will follow your practice with my next batch. Your tip about saving a whole plant for backup rather than messsing about with cuttings is useful.

. Enjoy your blooms this summerI. If you can think on I would love to hear how you fare with them over the next winter.

Many thanks for you response and advice.

Hiya Verdun

Once planted out, is it your intent to leave them out  in their final position? What area are you in?

Yes. I bought some last summer and put them in the garden. I suppose they grew to about 5-6". No sign of them this spring. Located in Co.Durham, I know the winter has been grim but I don't think that the frosts were particulularly severe last winter in this area. I still want them but I will be treating them differently this time - keeping them in 2/3 litre pots in the ground and overwintering the pots in a cold greenhouse. Anybody any other ideas?
