Size guide - Pack of 3 Jumbo Plug Plants 

Our premium perennials are supplied as Jumbo plugs. These plants would benefit from potting into large pots (13cm upwards) for a few weeks before planting out in the garden. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost.  Compost volume around 5cm deep x 5cm square. Foliage height 5cm-20cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.

Foxgloves are happy to be grown in most soils but prefer a free-draining but evenly moist area in the mid to back of the border.  In the wild you may see them growing in woodland areas.

Foxgloves in the purpurea range are biennial and do not usually flower in their first years growth. However, ‘Snow Thimble’ plug plants will produce flowers this summer and if overwintered (mulched to protect the crown) will also produce flowers next year. They self-seed readily.

*All digitalis (foxgloves) are harmful if eaten and the foliage may irritate the skin and eyes.

Delphiniums, Digitalis and Lupins are quintessential cottage garden plants reaching up to heady heights of around 50-60cms (depending on the variety) and are more columnar than widely spreading, so they work really well planted towards the back of the border to set off other mid-size plants. They also make eye-catching cut flowers for arrangements and displays.

Special requirements - Slugs love to munch on emerging young shoots of Delphiniums and Lupins. If you can deter them without the use of slug pellets, all the better, but if you have to, sprinkle pellets around the base of the plants. You will need to reapply after rainfall.

As most of our varieties are tall, they will probably need staking and tying in as they grow during the season so that any windy weather doesn’t blow them over.
