Hi Sean. Gardeners generally reckon to sow foxglove seeds when the current foxgloves are in flower.  In nature foxgloves have to flower, make seed, then wait for it to ripen before sowing their own seed. Mine are doing that now so I think you could.

The others you mention I'd keep til spring

However there are a lot of plants, especially wild plants, that benefit from autumn  sowing, for some it's essential. what else have you got?

Hi old chippy, I've seen your name on the talkback threads but never seen you on the forum before. Welcome. I agree about not being afraid to try. Sometimes we learn more from getting it wrong than from getting it right
