Product Information

Velvet trumpets of pinky purple make this woodland native a must-have for wildlife gardens.

Becoming rarer in the wild, foxgloves make very striking garden plants. Their beautifully dappled blooms attract pollinating insects and are a favourite of our native bumble bees.

Quick and easy to grow, digitalis is ideal for naturalising and will attract bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects. Known commonly as foxgloves, this architectural plant will punctuate borders with spires of bloom. Perfect for filling wild gardens or meadows with colour, they’ll self-seed with abandon!

A hardy biennial, plants will grow a rosette of bright green, furry leaves in the first year, and produce a magnificent spike of spotted trumpets in their second year.

Never before has it been so important to protect pollinators such as bees, and this wildflower is ideal to encourage them into your garden. Bees are invaluable for pollinating a whole range of plants and especially useful for kitchen gardens to enable the formation of many fruits and vegetables. Take a look at our bee book for more details on these fascinating insects.

Care Information

How to grow foxgloves:

  • Sow 0.5cm (¼in) deep, directly into prepared soil.
  • Before sowing, rake the soil to a fine tilth and water well
  • When seedlings appear (usually 21-35 days) thin them to 25cm (10in) apart.
  • Water well and regularly until plants are established.
  • Outdoors, keep plants weed free to avoid competition.
  • Alternatively, sow seeds indoors, April-July, 0.5cm (¼in) deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, unheated greenhouse, or on a cool windowsill.
  • Transplant individually, when large enough to handle, to 7.5cm (3in) pots. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, before planting out into moist soil, September-October, 25cm (10in) apart. Flowers: May to July, the following year.
