    A breakthrough in breeding has produced these new 'Dalmatian' foxgloves, which will usually flower in their first year. They form tidy clumps of foliage, but it is for the wonderful spires of thimble-like flowers that open upwards from the base of the spike in summer, that they are best-loved.

    A great way to bulk up your perennial borders, these large plug plants are useful for adding vertical interest as well as colour.

    Grown in individual plug cells, each plant measures about 4 - 6cm tall (from the base of the root to the top of the plant). They are ideal for keen gardeners who have a greenhouse where the plants can be grown on until they are ready for planting out in the garden once all chance of frost has passed.

    Please note: We grow these especially for you, so we do request that full payment is made when you place your order. See above for despatch dates. To ensure that your plants arrive in the best possible condition each pack will be despatched individually.

    Garden care: Plant out into a well prepaed bed and stake with bamboo cane in more exposed positions. During the growing season apply a balanced liquid fertiliser every 2-3 weeks and wearing gloves cut back the faded flower stems to a flowering sideshoot. At the end of autumn cut back and compost the the remaining faded flower-stems.
