Foxglove Fever

Foxgloves love my impoverished soil. And luckily I love foxgloves! They seem to last a few years in my garden, and I've decided to plant more in my 'White Garden' this spring. I say White Garden, it's really only 2 metres by 4 and has not been a great success. It's in a tricky area of the garden - not much sun and lots of roots from a nearby mixed hedge. So foxgloves should be ideal - I'm going to plant lots of them in mixed colours, with some poppies, which also like my soil. Below are some pics of foxgloves and poppies which looked nice earlier in the year.

  1. Nice to see foxgloves allowed to just grow - they look so good just given their head in a border.
