    How to Plant Alba Foxglove

    When to Plant Foxglove Seeds

    Direct sow after all threat of frost has passed, up to early Summer. Can also be started indoors 8-10 weeks before the final frost date.

    Where to Plant Foxglove Seeds

    Foxglove prefers Full Sun, but can tolerate Partial Shade conditions. In warmer climates, Partial Shade can be preferable. Choose an area with some wind protection, as regular wind exposure can impact the growth pattern.

    How to Plant Foxglove Seeds

    Moisten soil and hand scatter seeds onto the surface approximately every 12-18 inches, and compress seeds onto the surface. Do not cover the seeds, as they require sunlight in order to germinate. Once seedlings develop two or more leaves, thin growth back to every 12-18 inches. Choose rich, loamy, well-draining soil that's slightly acidic - you may wish to Amend with organic matter as well.

    How to Care for Foxglove

    After your plants have established, add a layer of mulch in order to aid in retaining moisture. You can leave this mulch overwinter as well to insulate the roots for the following season as well. As a tall-grower, Foxglove will likely need staking. If you want your Foxglove to self sow, be sure not to deadhead your flowers when they're spent.

Foxglove Facts

Foxgloves are a Biennial, Which means they will bloom every OTHER year, not every year.
So when you plant them, they will flower the 2nd, 4th, 6th years, etc.
I love them they are beautiful and prolific, thought not advised for those with pets.
They appear to flower every year after the 2nd year due to reseeding themselves everywhere
So when purchasing plants, learn the terms: Annual, Perennial, Biennial. etc....

Very hopeful! To be cont'd...

I was quite nervous about sowing these seeds. I didn't realize that they would be so small and require 2 seasons to bloom. I started them inside in sterile seed mix and grow lights. Once sprouted, I thinned them out and after frost I transplanted them outside. They are doing great although only about 10" tall by fall. I am hoping they will return next spring and bloom for me. Like all seed packets I received from Eden Bros., I wish they printed specific planting info on the packet. Such as, sun requirements, plant height, and how deep to sow, as I had to refer to the website before planting.
