Foxgloves

Posted: 15/07/2015 at 13:42

There will be self seeding, maybe not quite as Pam's Choice but still nice. 

Sometimes a foxglove will go on for another year but I never feel they're as good. Others may have better results from this. 

If you want more alliums between, I'd pull the foxgloves up as soon as they've seed and start afresh

HOG WEED

Are we talking about the native hogweed here or the alien giant hogweed?

Can anyone help me identify this plant and what is wrong with it?

Bit blurry. You must have been to the same photography school as me

Can you get a clearer one?

Foxgloves (the usual Digitalis purpurea varieties) are generally considered biennial and once they've flowered they die. You might get the odd one last another year but rarely very good.

Let them seed for future years.

Hi Sunshine, yes from seed. I never use heat and start anything earlyso I probably didn't give them a long enough season.

Sainsburys always have some when I need them so no emergency

None now. I've had some fine foliage plants in the past and the odd flower but never near a fruit

If the pods are brown and rattling as Lyn describes, you can take them off and remove the seeds from the pods. I'd be surprised if they're that advanced.
