Seeds from tall Foxgloves

Hi Lyn

All the digitalis may have been mine.

If the laevigata flower with rather flabby looking yellow flowers instead of lively orangey brown, sorry, that's grandiflora.

I can tell them apart in leaf if you need to know. I knew mine were grandiflora but when I planted them I was left with a label saying laevigata

You can't beat a really well organised nursery system

Hello Snoodle,

Not worth keeping. They won't be fully developed as seeds and would never germinate. They will just rot. Are there any left on the plants to have another go later?

What is this flower?

Malva moschata, musk mallow maybe

I like the whites with the fairy footprints inside

Low on foxgloves here this year though. I let them do as they like and they obviously didn't like last year.

D. lutea are doing their usual excellent job,

D. ferruginea is not bad,

D laevigata; don't know what went wrong there. They're D. grandiflora and very short, maybe in the pot too long, They were flowering before I planted them out. (yesterday )

Might do Fishy. Rust is big here, it destroyed a big patch of Vinca a few years ago.

We're not below sea level but not much above

Your hollyhocks get rust when they get to my garden Fishy

I love hollyhocks but they always look awful from the waist down. I try and place them so the legs are hidden

Strong winds forecast
