I couldn't find my original thread so I've had to start a new one. An update for those interested......... T&M sent me an apology today and said the 6 plants will be replaced in June. I will definately be over-wintering them under glass this time. I hope this has helped anyone else with the same problem.

Hi break23 - thanks for the reply. I think I will just persist with the emails - just for the hell of it and make a promise to myself never to spend another penny on anything from T&M.

Thanks cairnsie - I will check it out. If my memory serves me correctly in Illumination was awarded Chelsea 2012 plant of the year and heralded as the first perennial foxglove (hardy perennial)

Hi GW - these are a new type of foxglove bred by T&M. They are described as being a hardy perennial, as compared with their biennial relatives. Thanks for the reply
