Growing Calendar for Digitalis (Foxglove) Dalmatian Mix - Plants
Delivery: Late April to Late May
Beautiful trumpet flowers, this great mix of foxgloves adds grandeur to your garden. Every bloom is an attractive trumpet with dark freckles within. Foxgloves are tall and look majestic. Being a resident of many a UK forest or wood they perform well in the deepest of shade. Plant under garden trees, in the centre to the back of borders where their spires rise producing attractive flowers in abundance.
Lovely in cottage gardens and effective in modern gardens either at the back of a border or along a wall-side border. Consider cutting some of the stems for cut flowers to partner with other woodland flowers that look great in bouquets like hydrangeas.
With a rosette of large leaves at the base of the flowers mammals and ground-loving birds can shelter and hide from the searing sun and predators.

Once in bloom this Dalmatian Mix brings much-loved British insects like bumblebees and lacewings. Growing to a height of 60-90cm (2-3 ft) Dalmatian Mix look great at the back of borders or under trees that cast heavy shade. Foxgloves even thrive in containers if you want a wildlife garden but have a concreted back yard only.
If you love your foxgloves give the spikes of flowers a tap or two to disperse seeds for seedlings for next generation of flowers.
