Thompson & Morgan Foxglove Illumination Collection is the most spectacular foxglove mix you will have ever seen and consists of Illumination Flame, Illumination Pink and Illumination Raspberry. These exotic looking blooms make a striking display in your garden! Parentage from the little-known Isoplexis, or Canary Island Foxglove, gives these exciting foxgloves their fabulous tropical colouring. Being completely sterile, they will not set seed, giving them an incredibly long flowering period. Unlike most foxgloves which are generally biennial, these semi-evergreens are true perennials so you will be able to enjoy their flowers for years to come.

Pot up digitalis plants and grow them on in frost free conditions for transplanting outdoors later on. When plants are well-grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days, before planting them in borders and containers in sun or partial shade. If plants are received in the autumn, pot them up and grow them on in cool, bright, frost-free conditions over winter. Although foxgloves prefer a fertile, moist soil, they will happily tolerate almost any soil except those that are excessively dry or waterlogged.
Water foxglove plants regularly until fully established. In autumn, cut back faded foxglove flower stems to encourage plenty of new side shoots. During the winter months, move containers to a position with a minimum temperature of 0ºC, and water sparingly. Lift border-grown plants and pot them up for over-wintering.
