Perennial Foxglove?????

Thanks break23. I suppose all any disgruntled gardener can do is post the tale of woe on forums such as this to warn others. I'm going to send an email to Monty Don as well.

I have 3 left to plant out - I think I will put them in a large pot and move to the greenhouse for winter. Those in the garden will have to be dug up when the weather gets cold and overwintered in the greenhouse too. I will let you know what T&M say. Thanks for the replies - please keep them coming

Yep, I totally agree. I would never have bought them if I was aware that they are a bit tender.

I've just emailed T&M and asked for a refund. I bought another 12 plants this year.

Thanks for the reply nutcutlet. I just checked T&M website and they are described as being a hardy perennial. My garden is sheltered, they can't be as hardy as claimed.

They were advertised as hardy perrenials . I will try to contact T&M again and ask for a refund, they were expensive plants. Thanks for the reply.

I planted out 6 of the new Tompson & Morgan Pink Illumination Foxgloves last year. Despite it being a fairly mild winter they all look as dead as the proverbial dodo. I have contacted T&M but haven't had a reply. I would be interested to hear if anyone else has had the same result. Thanks
