@mikethegardener they are very small with some seeming stronger than others. I collected the seeds from a field near my house and didn't think they would grow so it was a bit of an experiment!! 😊😊

I was rather heavy handed when doing my foxgloves ended up with hundreds they are all aprox 7 inches tall now I've shared them with family and friends and I sneaked into the local park one evening last week and planted the remaining 80 seedings in the woodland area I've also scattered aquilegia seeds too, bit naughty but can't wait to see them in flower next year 😈💕

I think I will end up doing similar! Never sown seeds before but have lots in the fridge waiting for spring!

@mikethegardener what are your pearls of wisdom for these?

@lscott Hi Laura. Well, you have got quite a few seedlings ther!! Wait a little longer to let them grow more then they will need to be transferred into small pots. When there are just two tiny leaves, these are called the seed leaves. The next set of leaves that will appear are the true foxglove leaves. It is these true foxglove leaves that will need to get a little bit bigger before you can transplant them. Shout if you have any more questions 😊
