Can I move a foxglove now ?

Posted: 14/08/2016 at 18:20

I find this often happens, it will be splendid next year. We make a clear distinction between annual, biennial and perennial but the plants don't. I sowed some foxgloves very late last year, about half flowered this year and the rest are large clumps of leaves for next year flowering. Nothing wrong with your plant or your technique.

I need a fleet of gloves, extra-tough ones for shredding, medium ones for general weeding and pruning and some lightweight ones for mixing up composts. Most have a very short life.


Gloves need to be sold singly, I can always find a left hand glove with no holes but right handers are hard to come by.

Nitrile? that's pseudo-rubber isn't it. They'd last all of five minutes in my garden (as long as there were no thorny plants around.

Echinops and eryngiums are both good at colonising

Is that eryngium, cornelly? I would have guessed echinops but I could be wrong


Lovely colour though. I nearly got rid of mine last year, glad I didn't...never noticed the bees on them before this year

multi-purpose composts are very variable but some are poor at draining. It's hard to tell what a plant died of sometimes.

Thank you for your thoughts everyone. I've left the feeders empty for a few days, no bodies but much warmer now I'll see what happens when I fill them again.
