We bought these plants and now almost all of the blooms have fallen off and there are virtually no buds for new blooms. What is wrong?

Foxglove is a spring/early summer bloomer but if you cut the flowering stalk down after the flowers are spent it will often send up one or two more flowering stalks. They will be smaller than the first, but they will extend the blooming season a bit. It will retain its leaves all summer long and next spring it will bloom again for you. Enjoy.
