I love looking up and then normally getting the new varieties so thank you very much for the suggestions. 

Thanks Bev, it really is a lovely book.

I love my Jacob's ladder at the moment and it smells wonderful.

(Also as a newcomer I have been reading all the old posts and can't remember who posted about the book ' The Bee-Kind Garden' but I did go and buy it. What a dear treasure of a book, thanks for the recommendation).

Fantastic, thank you all everso much. They stay where they are then and in the future I know where to come for advice. 

Google smoogle...

I have a query about foxgloves, but I must ramble on first. This is my first forum post so I am not aware of etiquette yet! I have a tiny 12 by 14 ish feet garden, all paved, so everything is in pots. I enthusiastically grow a multitude of herbs, some vegetables, mange tout, runnerbeans and tomatoes. I also have some flowers. I was given the rather magnificent flowering foxgloves; 8 plants in 4 large pots. i made the most dreadful of mistakes of googling the foxglove. Well... the hysterical rantings left me running for the hills. So sensible advice please....As everything is cheek by jowl in my garden am I putting anyone in danger by having the foxgloves  close to the edibles. Also the lovely pollinators visit everything, should this be a worry. I have not been concerned before and I knew they were poisonous. However to believe the google search I feel fortunate to have made it this far and that to merely breathe in the same air as the evil foxglove is lethal. I do have children but they are teenagers and rarely venture out into the garden. 

Thank you
