Foxglove Babies

Foxglove plants are delightful in the garden. I started mine from seeds. (What do you do with a thousand sprouts? - That's another story!) It was a pleasure to find that my plants had made babies, but what to do with them? This is how I split mine to make new plants.

A few years ago a friend gave me a whole bunch of young foxglove plants. I planted them in shady spots and they established themselves quite well that fall. The following spring, I had flowers. Later that year (late fall) I took off the seed pods and and sprinkled the seeds from inside in different locations. By the next spring, I had hundreds of babies! I moved them in mid-spring to where I wanted them to be. They grew well and flowered the following spring. I still continue the cycle from the original plants. They are such pretty flowers!

Thanks for the tips on dividing and replanting foxgloves.
