Very nice to be able to use those seeds.
Garden Share lost my comments about FOXGLOVE.:-(
Well, I think I said that I am getting my starts from last year's purchased plants. This last March I found seed pods on the old plants and brought them into our screened porch and scattered them in a planter that was used for petunias. It took a while for them to germinate in their little home fashioned greenhouse. See the wire hoops that held the plastic cover. After transplanting some of them I discovered that petunias have also germinated. By starting them exposed to the weather, they are better conditioned for going into the garden.
The herb pots with pansies are outside my kitchen door. There are four pots of herbs in each large planter and you can see a little of the pot in one photo. The urn, below, has a rosemary tree and foxglove planted at the base. These are second year plants that we purchased in bloom last year. Later in early summer we will probably replace the rosemary with angel wing begonias.

So, here in Northern Il. we are now under a freeze warning. I hope the plants that are sprouting will do well between now and the 6th, since I don't have enough of anything to cover any plants.
Between three of the ladies, I should say.
There's always something to learn. That's one of the things I love about my work ... between the ladies I garden for, there's over 200 years of gardening experience to learn from.
I hope so, it has such a pretty flower on it. I've only been tinkering in the garden for 11 yrs so there is soooo much out there that I need to learn.
If you get Foxglove established, it should self-seed, and through that you will get continuous blooms.
last year we bought foxglove to plant in the yard, reading up on it it is a biennial plant. So My thought is that this year it won't bloom.
I was thinking of buying another one this year and putting it next to the one from last year so that they bloom in alternate years, but I could totally wrong with this thinking.
Anyone out there that can educate me on these beautiful plants?
