Foxglove - Excelsior Hybrids Mixed
This is an effective and spectacular strain of Foxglove, superb for shady shrub and tree areas, back of borders and excellent for cut flowers. They can really bring the early summer garden alive! Height: 5ft.
Sow in late spring early summer outdoors in a well prepared seed bed. Sow the seeds very thinly 1.5mm in drills 30cm apart, keep the soil damp until germination takes place and thin out the seedlings to 15cm apart when large enough to handle. Transplant 6cm apart into flowering site in the autumn for flowering the following year. They will grow in most soils and prefer part shade.
