Excellent results

First time growing foxgloves. I put them in a seed tray, and I think I put them under plastic till they came up ( blue mountains, cool climate), then potted the whole tray into the ground in a shady spot and kept them watered. When they were large enough, I transplanted them, and then had to do it again when they were larger, as I hadn't t expected them all to survive. You can't kill these things, at least not where I live. I have dozens in various spot in the garden. The snails don't eat them, a big plus. Only thing is, it takes a couple of summers for them to flower, and I will probably moved by then. I always knew that, but wanted to see if I could do it successfully, and treated it as an experiment, which worked beautifully.

Healthy Growth

Lovely green foliage. Early days yet, so very excited for them to eventually bloom. Pleased with the results so far.
