I’m still getting peloric flowers on this foxglove. It’s put out so many smaller new shoots #foxglove #common-foxglove #peloric-flower

It is isn't it. I've saved some seeds too and it says the resultant plants should be the same. That's lovely of you to say but most of my knowledge comes from Google, I'm a Google addict 🙄😂😂 @charlottejhurst

All my others did but this one seems unstoppable, I'm assuming it's something to do with being a mutant. It's not a pretty plant at the moment though but I want the seeds 😊 @london148

@pelly. I hope not, thanks love. Had a good day today feeding plants and beans. I love to see them spruce up after. I have started using Richard Jackson feed on qvc. And it's organic. It's really good. 👌👍

I've been feeding all mine this afternoon too. I use Tomorite but I'll have a look at the Richard Jackson one, I like the sound of it being organic 😊 @gwenniemom

Morning everyone, my #bestofjune has to be the peloric flowers I got on this foxglove. After the original spike it had four more, each with the same, this is the last one. Have a wonderful day 💗 #common-foxglove #peloric-flower #pink

Cataloguing. This must have been a gift from a bird as I've never grown them. Much as I love them I have always worried about Emily as she loves touching plants, so I've explained to her that they could make her poorly so hopefully I won't have to dig it up 🌼🌼 #foxglove #digitalis #giftfromabird #freebie 6/6/19
