A couple of mine survived my 5a/4b winter. They do well in certain places and not others. Not in mine.


I wish I could give you some tips. Frances has good luck with foxgloves. I had two or three over winter here for the first time too. It is a happy happy thing.


You know it's strange here that none of my foxgloves came back. I usually always have a lot of seedlings each spring and this year, none. I hope the ones that survived will bloom and give you new seedlings for next year.


Kathleen !!!! Mine did too and I am flabbergasted !! ... I think this is a sign that this year is going to be one heck of a garden year girl ! Congratulations too !
Joy : )


Hooray for self-sown foxgloves surviving the winter! Wish I could tell you the secret, but I don't know. Sorry! Happy Earth Day Kathleen. :)


Hooray! Happiness is found in the garden so many times. Either that or we are just easliy pleased. :)


Yay for you! I don't have luck with them if I plant them in the ground for some reason. The ones I have in pots are doing great! I might have picked off the seed heads though before so I might try planting them in the ground again!!! I am happy some of yours made it!


Nice. I have foxglove seedlings started. Love those flowers.

Kathleen, I have not one clue as to how to overwinter Foxglove. I believe they're biennial... the one time I had a plant (aren't they gorgeous?), it didn't grow back for year #2. I cannot even get delphinium to overwinter... hmph! ;-)
