For zones 3-9 Foxglove are biennials which means they will grow foliage for one season and only flower for one year. These seeds are very tiny so you can direct seed them in your garden using the shaker method

The best way we find to grow Foxglove is to sow these directly in your garden from late summer until at least two weeks before your first frost in early fall. Foxglove will not germinate when temps are 60 or below and need several days of temps in the 70's to germinate.

Work enriched garden soil 6" deep and scatter your seeds and then top with a very light dusting of compost or peat. One of the biggest mistakes made with Foxglove sowing the seeds too deep as they need light to germinate. The seeds will germinate, and develop roots over winter, and flower the following spring and summer.

If you get a late start, and want to germinate them in late fall, start them indoors in 4" pots using germination heat mats (or other heat source) to get them to germinate. Once they have their second set of leaves, and are about 2" tall, transplant them into the garden as they send down a tap root and if left in pots will become root bound and not develop correctly.

You can also start these in winter indoors about 8 weeks before your last frost in spring in 4" pots. In pots sow them on the surface of your potting material and dust with sand or vermiculite. After your last frost in the spring transplant them into your garden and they will bloom flowers a little later than fall planted Foxglove.

Finally you can also sow these in the spring directly in your garden. They will germinate, and grow, but will probably not bloom until the next spring and summer.

Once Foxglove have had a full growing season of blooming flowers they are done. They will die back at the first frost, and some will try to come back the following spring, but they will not be very productive.
