Foxglove babies

I have a ton of foxglove babies popping up, Does anyone have any luck wintering them over? Anything special I can do?

I have never had any luck with foxgloves....period. I had a few reseed and there are a couple out there this year, too, but I have never gotten one to bloom. Good luck with yours.

The best advise I can give you is keep them sunny, high and dry. The only ones I have had winter over sucessfully are the ones that I don't cover. >All others have looked promising at first thaw- but succumb to damp rot as the spring progresses.

Last couple of years I've had really good luck with them. Haven't done anything special. I've had them in a few different spots. Sunny, part shade and mostly shade so that doesn't help either. They should bloom for you next year if your lucky.
