Product Description

Grow a garden filled with Foxglove, Gloxiniaeflora Mixture, from freshly harvested Digitalis purpurea flower seeds. Gloxiniaeflora Mixture will produce a colorful blend of tubular, bell shaped flowers, atop attractive green foliage. These beautiful flowers bloom in shades of cream, rose, lavender & white. The plants themselves will grow to a mature height of roughly 60 inches tall, making them taller than the Excelsior Mixture. They will attract an array of beneficial insects to the garden, such as butterflies, bumblebees, honeybees and even ladybugs.

Categorized as a biennial flowering plant, Gloxiniaeflora Mixture will grow quickly from seed, establishing a rather deep root system. The plants then wilt with the first frost, to return the next season, often times flowering the second year of growth. Although biennials such as Foxglove only live for an extended season, it is possible to regrow them the following year, by collecting fresh seeds at the end of it's lifespan. Foxglove plants can also drop their seeds to the bare ground beneath, just as they would in a natural setting.

Gloxiniaeflora Mixture will go great in the garden as a border plant, along fences & as a backdrop plant. Planting other shorter flowers in front of it will create a dramatic blend of beautiful colors. Foxglove, Gloxiniaeflora Mixture may produce beautiful flowers, but they should also be planted with care. Foxglove flowers, leaves and seeds can be toxic to humans & most animals if consumed. It may be best to plant these flowers in an area where pets, such as dogs and cats can't really mess with them.

Sowing The Seed

Foxglove seeds are extremely tiny, so be careful when opening the seed package. They are best established directly outdoors when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed. Begin by turning the soil, or replacing it with a fresh sowing medium. Scatter the seeds to the surface of the soil, so that they remain visible. Lightly press them into the surface, but avoid covering. Some direct light is necessary for proper germination to occur.

Growing Conditions

Foxglove plants thrive in an area of full sunlight to light shade. They prefer temperatures of around 65F and require a rather rich soil, or sowing medium. You must also make sure that the soil is well drained as well. Adding a light compost to areas containing hard, compact soil, will increase drainage. Water the seeds daily with a mist setting so that you do not disturb the seeds. This also prevents overwatering.

Germination & Growth

Foxglove seeds can take anywhere between 7 and 21 days to properly germinate. The plants grow to a mature height of roughly 48 to 60 inches tall and can be spaced about 12 to 18 inches apart from one another. Gloxiniaeflora Mixture will produce beautiful & colorful, bell shaped blooms, in shades of cream, rose, lavender & white. They are poisonous to most animals and humans if consumed, so be careful in choosing an area where they won't cause harm.

When we ship our seed products to customers, we fill a small portion of packets that sell on a weekly basis. We do not print an expiration date on the packets since the large majority of seeds technically do not expire for long periods of time, IF they are stored in the proper conditions.

Answer: We do not send paper invoices with our orders since the invoice can be viewed online with your Seed Needs account. You will also receive an invoice / order confirmation through email.

Question: What is the difference between a hybrid variety and a GMO based seed product.
Answer: Hybrids are a NATURAL process of cross pollinating two species, thus producing a first generation hybrid (F1.) For example: Mixing a red, double blooming, single stem sunflower, with a yellow, multi branching sunflower might result in a orange-red, double blooming, multibranching plant.

GMO based seed products are a completely different and unatural process of gene splicing in a laboratory. The process entails the introduction of a separate biological kingdom, such as a bacteria, or a pesticide. This bacteria or pesticide is then eaten directly by the consumer when the crops reach maturity. (BAD NEWS)

Question: Can you ship these seeds overseas?
Answer: At this time we only ship within the United States and Canada.
