BEST TO START SEEDS INDOORS

Sow seeds as thinly as possible in a container of seed starting mix. Cover 1/8 inch deep with mix, keep moist and between 60-70°F (16-21°C). Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant into the garden. Feed every 2 weeks with half-strength fertilizer. Once seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant 2 to 3 inches apart into a deeper container or individual pots so root systems have room to develop. When plants are 3 to 4 inches tall, gradually acclimate to outdoor conditions and plant out in well-drained soil. Thin or transplant seedlings 18 to 24 inches apart so they have room to mature.

 

GROWING NOTES

Foxgloves do well in dappled sunlight all day or full morning sun. In mild summer areas, they handle full sun all day. Foxgloves appreciate rich fertile soil and consistent moisture. Cut spent flower stalks back to the base of the plant to encourage repeat bloom and flowering side shoots. These biennial plants need the winter season’s cold to initiate flowering, so sow seeds any time from spring to midsummer to have well-established seedlings for bloom the following spring.
