Foxglove (Digitalis Purpurea Dwarf Red) 30 seeds (#1084)

A cottage garden classic, foxglove is a short-lived perennial (commonly listed as a biennial) that is native to the Mediterranean regions of Europe.
In spring it produces basal rosettes of soft green leaves. By late spring to early summer tall, upright stems lined with lightly fragrant, tubular red flowers appear. These typically have spotted throats and are highly attractive to bees. (info source: Learn2Grow.com)

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Sow inside from March to April, outside - from Aptil to June. Fill 7 cm peat pots with a seed-starting mix. Water the soil and allow the water to drain before you sow the seeds.
2. Sow two or three seeds to each peat pot. Cover the seeds with 1-2 mm of the soil.
3. Place the peat pots in a warm location with indirect sunlight. The temperature range needs to stay between +18-20C.
4. Water the soil to keep it moist. The seeds will germinate within two to three weeks.
5. Thin out the seedlings. Remove the weaker seedlings from the peat pots after they grow one set of leaves and reach 4-5 cm tall.
6. Transplant the seedlings once the threat of frost passes. Select a location in the garden to transplant the seedlings. The location needs to receive filtered sunlight or morning sun.
7. Dig holes in the soil twice as large as the peat pots. Space the foxgloves 50 cm apart. Water the soil in the hole to moisten it.
8. Place the peat pots in the holes. The top of the peat pot will need to sit level with the top of the soil. Fill the hole with the moist soil.
9. Water the foxglove seedlings when the top inch of the soil dries.
