Digitalis purpurea var.

Our lovely English foxglove selection bears 3 - 3 1/2 foot tall sturdy spikes of densely packed, soft, bell-shaped flowers in pastel shades with freckled throats. Hummingbirds, bumblebees and butterflies love to visit these deer resistant plants. Sown in early spring, Carousel will bloom the first year from seed; sow midsummer for bloom the following spring. Mature plants usually self-sow to produce future generations. New seedlings can be easily moved in their first season. 
Caution: Toxic if eaten.

START EARLY INDOORS

Sow seeds as thinly as possible in a container of seed starting mix. Cover 1⁄8 inch deep with mix, keep moist and between 60-70°F (16-21°C). Provide a strong light source until ready to plant into the garden.

Feed every 2 weeks with half-strength fertilizer. Once seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant 2 to 3 inches apart into individual pots. When plants are 3 to 4 inches tall, gradually acclimate to outdoor conditions and plant out in well-drained soil. Can also be planted in early/mid summer for bloom the following spring.

THIN OR TRANSPLANT

Space seedlings 12-15 inches apart so the plants have enough elbow room.

GROWING NOTES

Deer resistant foxgloves do well in light shade, dappled sunlight all day or full morning sun. They appreciate rich fertile soil and consistent moisture. In mild summer areas, they can handle full sun all day. Cut the softly colored spires of bloom often for lavish bouquets.

Encourage repeat bloom and flowering side shoots by cutting spent flower stalks at plant bases. Plants also self sow readily. A favorite of hummingbirds, butterflies and bumblebees!
