I don't think this deal has been recognised for being as good as it really is - you're genuinely getting 18x 9" perennials that normally sell for £6.99-£7.99 each, ie the RRP £125 is true enough. You're saving £100! 18x 9" will be quite heavy as well - so the P&P is cheap, considering. Looks like a genuine sale @ cheapo price to reduce over-stock.

Cracking deal.

Your bulbs won't be ruined! They'll cope with anything the UK weather can throw at them, the worst you might see is a spoiled daffodil if they were already in flower - but the bulb will be fine.

Expensive way to grow Foxgloves


yep last year I collected many thousands of foxglove seeds free of charge

all one colour, though - these look as if they might be a bit more interesting
Looks good. I have some empty large pots in my garden - do these just get planted in some compost, then it’s a case of just forget them and they flower each year?

How far apart should they be planted from each other?

"The lucky dip will contain 18 x 9cm potted plants of varieties such as digitalis, dianthus, achillea and much more! These overwintered perennials have a strong root system which can encourage first year flowering!"


Many perennials take over a year to start flowering if you grow them from seed.

Not too many people would call foxglove/ digitalis a perennial. Is it technically a perennial? - I don't think so. It's a bog standard biannual that you start off in year 1 then it flowers, sets seed & dies in year 2.

OK there is technically a perennial Digitalis - Digitalis grandiflora cultivars not the biennial D. purpurea.


However they need over-wintering in a greenhouse or indoors, apparently.


Should allow us to identify which Digitalis variety Sutton Seeds will send.

It's 9cm not 9" ... quite a big difference.

Varieties?

Was it courier?

Mine were sent a couple of days ago, already had the post
33408714-Ld70E.jpgArrived within 5 days of ordering. Delivered by Royal Mail. Shall I put them in the raised bed or planter? I'd thought 40cm deep planter should be good enough for them.

I had the same. Delivered by Postie. As above. I've put some in containers, but mostly in a raised bed.

Squirrels did for my hyacinths (ate the flowers) and the late snow killed a few other things, so am hoping I have better luck with this.
