First flower bud or yet more leaves to open on my 3ft high foxglove? Is it ok to trim done leaves off when it eventually flowers? #advice #foxglove #patience #foliagefriday

I take off all the bottom leaves that look scraggly/dead whenever it's growing, I don't wait for the flowers 😀👍🏼😀

When does the foxflove flower appear, will it be a long stem shooting up in the middle? #eager

Looks like there will be more than one shoot as there are two rosettes that I can see. They flower from the beginning of June in the North East 😄

It will definitely flower this year 😄 I usually buy young foxglove plants from Wilko as they're only about £3 and they flower the same year and I don't really have space for growing on biennials. Funnily enough, the foxgloves I bought last year grew new leaves after I cut the stems back so I've kept them to see if I will get another hurrah before they're done. 😄

I'm definitely going to buy another one this year as I love foxgloves. Last year I had white one and it was fabulous! I quite fancy peach one this year. 😍
