Collecting and planting foxglove seeds

Pat(6b northern VA)May 15, 2008

I have some new varieties (one of each mostly) that I got in trades last year. They're blooming now and I would love to be able to collect and sow the seeds. If I manage to collect some, can I seed them directly into the garden right away?

Also, any tips on collecting/sowing these seeds would be appreciated.

I let my foxglove seeds drop to the ground to reseed. When they are ready, I do distribute some around, hoping another clump will begin. A small amount of seed I save for planting in the spring. For some reason, I find the seeds that drop by the plant do the best.

There is a good post about collecting the foxglove seeds!
