Planted foxglove 'foxy dwarf' in the front garden. The tall flower on shrub broke off and the base of the plant remains. How should I care for this now so it will bloom again next year. Also, will it flower again this season. Thanks for your reply.

Now that the flowering stalk is gone, your plant should develop two new flowering stalks. They will be smaller than the first one but should still provide some pretty flowers. At the end of the season when frost kills the tops of the plant back, remove the dead foliage and mulch over the plant with a few inches of compost, straw or pine needles. It should winter over nicely for you and sprout new growth next spring. Enjoy!
