Foxglove I like the article

Watering FoxgloveTenere asciutto
Water rarely, about once every 1-2 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down. As the cold weather arrives, in autumn, usually waterings is interrupted because these plants can't bear harsh temperatures.

Exposure FoxglovePosizione mezza ombra
It is advisable to position this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day. The Foxglove should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.These plants have an annual development, therefore when it becomes cold they deteriorate, and get completely eradicated.

Generalities Foxglove
The Foxglove have a one or two year development cycle. These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Foxglove is medium in size and 1,5 m in height; in the spring, summer, autumn, winter it assumes a white colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year.

Treatments Foxglove
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.

Soil Foxglove
We advise locating these annual plants in a dissolved soil, with an elevated drainage.
