can you wintersow these and if so, any recommendations on varieties? thanks for any suggestions.
Foxgloves and delphiniums are easily winter sowed. Any varieties should work.
I wintersow about six different foxgloves with great success. They are among the easiest, although I find it helps to pick out seedlings and grow them on in four inch pots before I plant them out in the garden.
Kimka, when do you wintersow your foxglove. I tried last year and had no luck. I would like to give it another try - I just love them. I WS in Feb and think that was too early? Not sure. I'm in zone 5. Any advice? Also, is it best to sow them in a milk jug?

What a great resource! Thanks!
Hi Bellarose, I also have found Foxgloves to be very easy to WS. The seeds are tiny, so I surface sow and press into the soil, and then moisten with a gentle spray.
They usually sprout in thick little carpets. I do the same as Kimka, and transplant some into flats and let them grow on before transplanting out to the garden. Then by the fall they are hopefully nice bushy clumps of foliage.
