Hope I've picked the right two pic's ! lol
Got two Foxgloves of the sameage and planted both at the same time. One has flowered, the other just has HUGE leaves. Any ideas please .. ??

Probably just the genetics of that seed. Its common for things to not grow equally, just nature. The big leaved one will probably flower next year

Thanks Nicky. The leaves are getting that big that I have to shove them out of the way so that some of the other plants can get a bit of sun ! lol

Perhaps the one that's flowering now gets more sun?

Plants that are growing in shade often produce bigger leaves than ones that are in more light. Anyway, biennials like foxgloves often die off after flowering, so you'll have one for next year.
