Chelsea Favourites


I love foxgloves and I always associate them with the RHS Chelsea Flower Show supported by M&G, as we have to call it. Unlike the many plants which expert growers have to hold back or bring on, foxgloves are usually flowering (not last year!) in May. So it’s no surprise to see ranks of them in the Chelsea gardens.

In my own garden, I let the paler ones seed in the hope of getting some interesting colours. Foxgloves are so obliging; very easy to move around. Just now I’m digging out small plants for potting up, so that I can move them to a better position. I like a row of them against the shed. This photo is of my favourite kind: white with dark red spots inside. Gorgeous.
