How to Plant Excelsior 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.

  1. Amazing!

    Can’t say enough about good things about this company. I got a few different types of seeds from them for the first time this season (Jan 2019) I didn’t expect to have the amount of success I did! Particularly- these foxgloves have been amazing growers. I started them inside in February. Foxgloves often don’t bloom the first year, so I never expected them too. It is now end of May. I had amazing success with all the seeds I planted - nearly all germinated. Now they are outside and beginning to have small blooms! Next year they will mature and get tall - but for this year I have them all in pots (assuming they wouldn’t be blooming) and they’re all already over a foot tall and showing their colors and tiny, baby blooms. That’s impressive! I can see their colors as well and have a good mix of pinks, purple, yellow. Most people don’t see any blooms at all their first year, let alone in 3-4 months. Very healthy, strong, seeds. I couldn’t be happier. Great company.

  2. So far so good!

    Received my packet very quickly and it came with a bonus packet of basil! Yay! The seeds are TINY! Like smaller than pieces of sand which is really incredible. My seedlings are doing very well and it's been about 2 months. They are only about 2 inches tall so far. They love the sunlight so I have to rotate my tray every few days. Try not to sow them too close together because they are very delicate when trying to put them into separate pods. I will definitely write a review when they are outside blooming this summer!
