Plant type: biennial
Planting depth: surface sow
Exposure: part sun
Plant spacing: 12”
Approx seeds per packet: 75
How to sow:
Sow seeds late spring to mid summer. Do not cover seeds as light is required for germination. Harden off seedlings and transplant outdoors. Plants will overwinter and bloom the following season. Pinching is not necessary.
While foxglove performs best in partial sun/shade, plants will also tolerate full sun with additional watering. Harvest cut flowers just as the first few flowers begin to open. Deadheading will encourage a second flush of flowers.
