Are Foxgloves poisonous?

Before you grow of plant foxgloves you must bear in mind that all parts of foxgloves are poisonous, they can kill an adult human if any part of the plant is ingested. You may also want to avoid growing foxgloves if you have pets which like nibbling at your garden.

Most foxgloves are biennial plants, this means they grow root and foliage in the first year, then flower and set seeds in the second year, before dying off. But you can get perennial varieties of foxglove too.

How to grow foxgloves

Foxgloves grow best in rich moist well-draining soil in full sun to full shade, some varieties tend to be more shade tolerant than others. 

How to grow Foxgloves

  • Remove weeds, dig and rake over the soil to make it level, then make a shallow drill in a row 
  • Water the drill row before you sowing your foxglove seeds. This provides moisture for them to germinate, and is better for them than watering afterwards
  • Sow the foxglove seeds in the drill according to the spacing and depths recommended on the seed packet. You may need to thin the seedlings out later 
  • Gently rake over some dry to cover the seeds. You won’t need to water for a few days

If you don’t remove the flower heads, foxglove plants will reseed themselves in abundance.
