I have seeds for a foxglove tree how to I plant it?

I live in Canada. Not sure how to plant the seeds and when.



Well we've got the usual communication problem - in Britain, Foxglove is a biennal flowering plant, latin name Digitalis. Is that what you mean, or do you have another plant which is called Foxglove Tree in Canada and obviously something completely different here;-)?

My goodness, at last I know something! I have a foxglove tree,(paulownia tomentosa), which was grown from seed by a friend. It is now about 12" high and I have just taken it out of its pot and planted it in the middle of the garden. It has taken a couple of years to get to this size, but can apparantly grow to over 80' - not in my lifetime I suspect!
