About Digitalis Pams Split
Pams Split Foxglove is a new frilly version of the cottage garden foxglove. They have the typical bells around the stem but blossoms split around both sides giving each bell a ruffle. The bells are white with burgundy centers. “Pams Split” produces more stems than is usual for a foxglove adding up to more blossoms.
Planting and Growing Digitalis
Make sure your Digitalis “harden off” to cool nights and windy conditions before planting. This requires leaving them outside in a protected area for a few days otherwise, they may wilt after planting. With these perennials, you can choose an area of sun, part shade or shade. Prepare your planting hole by turning the soil at least a shovel size deep and wide and be sure the hole is filled with plenty of organic matter for best results. Remove your perennials from their pack and leave the root ball intact. Plant deep enough to cover the top of the root ball. Press down firmly on the soil and then water it in. Consider fertilizing once or twice a season. You can mulch if you like but not too close to the plant to avoid rot. Clip spent blooms for a continuous flush of flowers!
