I should be getting my order of the new award winning foxglove Illumination Pink from Thompson and Morgans but I'm not sure what to do with them when they arrive ? Do I plant them strainght out into them border (tyhis would be my preference) or over winter them in the cold greenhouse ? Apparently they will be arriving in small pots about four inches tall....thanks, Ian.



All my plants from T&M this year have been much smaller than expected. I think you'll find they are too small to go straight out in the garden. Personally,I would play safe, pot them on and see how they come on over the next few weeks. If they look strong and chunky put them in the garden. If you're not sure I would overwinter them in your cold greenhouse. Too expensive to risk losing them I reckon !
