With its upright spires of peach-coloured blooms with red-speckled throats, compact Digitalis ‘Dalmatian Peach’ adds cottage garden appeal to planting. Bumblebees love the flowers, and they make superb cut flowers too.

NB: All parts of the foxglove plant are toxic if eaten, and contact with the foliage may cause skin irritation. Wear gloves when handling and working with them, and wash your hands afterwards.

How you will receive your plants:

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your garden ready plug plants in plug trays in a box. These are designed to keep your plants secure and to prevent damage in transit.

Can’t plant straight away?

If you aren't able to plant your plugs up straight away then ensure they stay moist. You can place your plugs on a saucer or tray of shallow water so they are able to stay hydrated. Aim to have your plugs planted within 3 days.

Planting tips and hints:

Planting in containers: Sprinkle a layer of stone or gravel in the bottom of the container to aid drainage. Use a high-quality young plant or general-purpose compost space the plugs evenly with enough space to allow the plants to grow. Mix in a slow-release granular fertiliser in the compost before planting to provide plenty of nutrients. Water thoroughly once planted up. Continue to water every 3-5 days and don't allow the container to dry out.

Planting in the ground: Dig a hole approximately twice as deep and 3 times as wide as the plant, if your soil is heavy mix in general-purpose compost, horticultural sand and stone or potting grit to ensure good drainage. Gently compact the soil around the plant and water thoroughly.

Feeding and aftercare: Foxgloves are woodland plants and prefer a site in dappled shade with moist, fertile soil. Cut back faded flower stems to a flowering side shoot. In autumn, cut all the flowerstems down to ground level. The Dalmatian range will flower in the first year after sowing, and will self-seed freely in the right conditions. To allow plants to self-seed, allow the flowers to dry out completely and set seed before removing.

When to plant and what to expect at different times of the year

You can plant hardy shrubs, trees and perennials at any time of the year avoiding the two extremes of heat and cold. During the summer months when it is hot and dry the need for watering becomes crucial to aid successful establishment and in the winter when the soil is frozen the plants will not be in active growth either above or below ground and risk getting cold damage. The same is true on the stage or growth you can expect your plants to be delivered in and this will be directly related to the time of year and the season.

When ordering through the year, here’s a summary of what to expect when receiving your plants:

Spring Months: Plants supplied in spring will be starting to show signs of active growth above and below ground.

Summer Months: Plants supplied in the late summer will be more advanced in size and flower stage

Autumn Months: In the autumn plants will be changing colour, showing signs of leaf colour breakdown and be preparing to shut down for winter.

Winter Months: Plants ordered and supplied during the winter months will be dormant and therefore may not be showing growth above the soil level or consist of bare branches with no leaves or bare roots with no soil.

These are all perfectly normal and natural for these types of plants growing in the northern hemisphere. All will still have a very healthy root system that can be planted when the weather is favourable by keeping the new soil level equal to the pot level and therefore not covering the crown of the plant at all. Planting during the autumn and winter months will allow for early establishment in the season and a bigger and better display throughout the main growing season.
