I set out foxgloves last year but they did not come up again this spring. What do I need to do to get them to come back each spring without having to buy new ones each year?

Foxglove like rich, organic soil, light shade, and regular water. Some types are biennial, meaning they grow the first year, bloom the second and then die. Others are perennial. Let blooms dry and go to seed, as they will self-sow. However, in hot climates, the plants sometimes die out. Try mulching with 2-3 inches of compost to maintain cooler soil temperatures.
