Weed fabric or just mulch for foxgloves?

Hello, this is my first time growing foxgloves. I planted them but wanted to know if I should just mulch them or use weed fabric to discourage weeds. I have read that they reseed themselves & didn't know if they could do that if I use weed fabric. Thanks for any info!

Hi Meggy,
I would not use weed fabric if you want it to reseed.

Around my hosts I put fabric and mulch and after a few years I had weeds growing in the mulch. The good thing is they are easy to pull out type weeds.

Good luck.
