Foxglove (digitalis) seedlings question

Posted by rayliveshere 6A (My Page) on

I sowed several packets of foxglove seed late this spring and now the seedlings are ready for transplant/thinning. Should I transplant them into desired locations in garden or into cells to overwinter in greenhouse? Concern is the late start, and whether the young plants will stand a chance of overwintering outside... Any suggestions appreciated.

Move them into the desired location. They will do fine over the winter and will be ready to flower next year. If you over-winter them in the greenhouse, they may try flowering there and be ready to discard by the time spring arrives.
