Seeds from tall Foxgloves

Posted: 16/07/2015 at 17:21

Assuming they're all from D. purpurea or varieties of. You'll probably have a higher proportion of purples to whites but you won't get any other colours creeping in. They all just seed back closer and closer to the real foxglove over the years.

I've got a few Ammi majus still need planting. Can they take a bit of shade or are they sun plants?

And the leaves of H. sphodylium are a very dull, flat green compared to H.mantegazzianum.

I used to grow the latter, it's splendid and I never had a problem but I think it's one of those things that doesn't always happen. Conditions, stage of growth of plant and maybe weather, have to be right. (or wrong).

It's like euphorbias, I've pruned, damaged, dug up and otherwise tortured many euphorbias and only be bitten once.

The use of 'proper' names removes any confusion

Heracleum sphondylium, common hogweed, a native

Heracleum mantegazzianum, giant hogweed, an alien
