Foxglove Seeds - Digitalis Purpurea - Pollinator Friendly & Beautiful
Quantity: 250 Seeds
Foxgloves are a biennial member of the figwort family, Scrophulariaceae. The plants grow to about 4 feet tall (or larger given the right circumstances), and the flowers are very beautiful, abundant, and they attract a wide range of pollinators too. Planting foxgloves anywhere in or near the garden will increase pollination of crops and other plants in the area due to the increase of pollinators they attract. The blooms make an excellent addition to just about any cut flower arrangement too. These plants are deer resistant, so they don't need to be planted within a fenced area.
All seeds are organic and open pollinated.

Foxgloves may be started in pots in the spring, or directly sown into the ground. If sown indoors, plant the seeds in a sterile growing medium; most available seed starting soils should do the job nicely; we use sunshine mix (peat moss and perlite). The soil should be made moist, but not damp. Sow the seeds on the soil surface. Store in a warm area until tiny sprouts emerge from the soil. Once germinated, and the first true leaf has formed, it's time to pot up to a larger container that contains a good quality potting soil. Transplant to their final location when the nighttime temperatures are consistently 8°C or higher. The plants don’t require very much attention once established other than maybe a layer of mulch, and a bi-weekly watering.
