General Care

Pruning Digitalis, or Foxglove, is a vital aspect of its care to ensure a thriving and visually appealing garden addition. Regular deadheading, removing spent flowers, is essential to encourage continuous blooming and maintain a neat appearance. In late Winter or early Spring, a more substantial trim back to the basal rosette of leaves helps rejuvenate the plant, fostering fresh growth and preventing leggy stems. Removal of yellowed or diseased leaves is crucial for disease control, and periodic thinning of crowded areas enhances air circulation, reducing the risk of fungal issues. Consider division every few years to prevent overcrowding, ensuring the long-term health of your Digitalis. Armed with clean pruning shears and gloves, these practices contribute to a flourishing and resilient Foxglove in your outdoor space. Happy gardening!
