Foxgloves have just taken off in a small corner of our garden

I Just love Foxgloves, it was my first time of growing them this year. Will the plant come again next year or is it the seed that drops that gives the new plant. Your corner looks fab! Welcome to Goy I see from your other posts you are just starting out, every one on here is always willing to give advice and are very friendly, I only joined in Feb myself and have found it a very interesting.

Thanks for your comments Teds. I think the foxgloves must be self seeding as I only put 6 in last year. We have very sandy soil which is obviously perfect for them :-)
I can't wait to get started on the cottage garden but hubby wont let me at it just yet as he's digging a soakaway and building a wall but I am doing all of the research and trying to decide which plants to buy. Ebay seems to be the place to buy plants - much cheaper than nurseries.

Lovely picture Pee, never fails to amaze me that wherever foxgloves seed they just match perfectly :-)

In B.C. where I grew up the foxgloves grow wild...they are a beautiful addition to your garden, Pee. You have a great crop of them...lucky you.

Welcome to GoY too....lots of ideas and great friendships are made on here. Nice to have a member who is just starting out to sort their garden....good luck...will look forward to future installments as you progress.
