Foxglove, an Easy Cottage Garden Flower

11K Views
Foxgloves grow like weeds here, a great plant to give your garden height in the late Spring and early Summer. Very easy to grow from seed.

    Thanks for the answer...glad you from fl ...its hard to know what the heck to plant down here. next question if I use the weed killer vinger/epson salt/ and dawn....will I be able to plant anything in that area....the landscapers have succeeded in killing alot of my shrubs when they weed kill.....UGH

      @Holly Faust I don't think that will affect the soil. I would be much more concerned if you were using regular salt.

    I think I have lost my beautiful Foxglove plants. All three seem to have not survived the bad winter we had. I mulched but I still am not seeing any growth. I live in Ohio. Is anyone else experiencing this? Very sad. they were so pretty.

      @Marie Campbell I am sorry to hear that. They are a biennial so last summer may have been their last year for the plants but typically they reseed readily. I must say mine are puny this year and did not seem to reseed prolifically at all. It does go in waves I suppose. We had a drought instead of the extreme cold you all had.

    Well I am not giving up the hope that some seeds took and will eventually come through the earth. Seasons here are much later than Ca. so there's still time left for growth. If not I will get more plants. I didn't know they were Biennial. Now, I did learn something. Thanks.

    oh beautiful I love Foxglove and Hollyhock!! I tried to grow from seed but without success I had to buy ready-made plants.
