What should I do with my foxgloves & lupins at this time of year? The foxgloves in particular are very large with a lot of leaves, should I be doing anything / will they disapear eventually until next year? Never had them before!



cut down any spent flower heads on both . the foxgloves will keep a rosette of leaves whilst the lupins will totally disappear until spring. keep a slug watch out on the lupins in the spring though.
