Re: foxglove

Your garden sounds like mine. One of my jobs on the to-do list is to remove some plants that I'm not thrilled with. I have a friend who wants anything I dig up, but they will be donated to a new home!

Thanks, I know I will love them...I have a number of things that aren't
real showy but very pretty and I have also learned to appreciate leaves and
their texture and color.  One of my neighbors commented that I have a
jungle...so true, and now I am trying to do some prunning and weeding.  It
is too hot to transfer things.
I think I am at the point where I need to be more selective in certain
beds.  It is difficult for me to take out some of my volunteers but know
that it must be done to have attractive beds.  I have several that I'm very
pleased with and others that are a hodgepogue that need work.

Bonnie, I don't know what to tell you. I have never started these myself. They were here when we moved here, and just reseed.
Since the seeds are falling now, I would guess that they should
be started now, but I don't see seedlings coming up in the fall.
Maybe, just put them out in a protected place and mark the spot
to look for them next spring.  They probably won't bloom the first
year, but they will come back pretty dependably after that.
I hope you aren't disappointed with these - they don't really
look like the ordinary foxgloves.  I love them, but they aren't
really showy.
Good luck with them.

Auralie, Thanks so much for the yellow floxglove seeds. I have always
used seedlings, my foxglove are white) so am a little uncertain about
when to start these. When do you usually plant the seeds? Here, foxglove
blooms late spring/early summer, depending on our weather, so I'm
thinking of putting some seeds out now to see if they do well with
cooler winter temperatures.
