These iconic woodland flowers are commonly found growing throughout the UK, adding a touch of charm to any garden. With their unique thimble-like shape and captivating pink or purple hues, each flower is freckled inside with maroon, attracting delightful bees to your outdoor space.

One of the many advantages of foxgloves is their extended flowering period, which can last for several weeks from June to July. Rising vertically from the base of the flower-spike, they create stunning displays and add a touch of elegance to borders or beds. Letting them self-seed will result in the formation of large, natural swathes, enhancing the natural beauty of your garden.


To thrive, these Digitalis purpurea Foxglove plants prefer partial shade and moist, humus-rich soil. Fast-growing on average, they bring lively growth that will leave you amazed. Fully hardy, these biennial plants will experience their first bloom in the second year, while continuing to produce new sideshoots and self-seed freely if provided with suitable conditions. 


For optimal growth, pot the plug plants into individual cells until they develop a decent basal rosette of foliage. Once hardened off, they can be planted out to reach their full potential.
