Foxglove anyone?


I have never grown foxglove from seed but I know there are some brave souls out there that enjoy starting seed. I collected my foxglove seed and as you can see below, I have quite a few seeds!
I wasn't able to separate colors so the seeds will be a mix of the foxglove in the top picture and the ones in the second picture. The purple looking ones in the second picture are really closer to the dark pink color in the first picture and since they bloomed so well this year I'm sure a lot of the seeds came from them. There might even be some pale yellow. Since foxglove are biennial, I would plant a few one year and more the next year.

If you are interested in some seed just leave a comment and e-mail (address in profile) me your mailing address and I will send them right out.

Lurkers are welcome to the seeds too but you'll have to show yourself with a comment!

Hi Jean,
Just stopping by to catch up. Looks like such a fun birthday party! Love the rocker and all her cute little gifts. I remember my youngest brother had a doggie theme for his first birthday too.
Those little ducks with boots you found are just too cute!
The green beans and potatoes look so yummy! Now wonder they're a family favorite.

Jean - I would love to have some of your foxglove seeds. I've never started them from seed before, but how fun if they make it!

Hi Jean,

Foxgloves are my absolute favorite plant. I would love some seeds. I just throw mine out in the garden and hope for the best. Sometimes I'm luckier than others. I've saved some of my own, but I would love to try some of yours.
