Propagating Foxgloves

If you've just got apricot ones and the neighbours haven't got purple ones they're more likely to seed true.

I don't grow apricot ones but I know what Hostafan means from other seedlings. Seed leaves  often show colouring that disappears later on. 

eg Mirabilis jalapa. I can tell the bright pink from the pale ones immediately they germinate but after the true leaves start they all look the same.

I don't like wind either Kleipieper

we had 20mm rain in the pot this morning. Not bad for us. You wouldn't believe how dry some parts of the garden are in spite of that.

And I've watered the toms Fishy

I wouldn't try itwhen the ground is rock hard. I'd leave it till winter
