Seeds from tall Foxgloves

Posted: 16/07/2015 at 23:25

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

In the last 2 months we've had two big laurel branches down and a large lump of ash

I don't know if there'll be anything useful there. I don't think there were conclusions but maybe ideas

There was a thread on this fairly recently John. I'll see if I can find it later but dinner is cooked and I'm starving

ID please

I think it's a salvia. They don't all have the characteristic smell. I have the offspring of one originally grown as Mainatch. I just went out and prodded it and it smells of leaves

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.
