I was planting a foxglove today when due to my own clumsiness I managed to snap the flower spike. I could cry -it was a real beauty.

Have I killed the plant or will it manage to grow another spike? Cry

I too had a foxglove disaster - one was flattened by a falling bird table.  I propped it back up, leaning it on a plant pot for support.  I'm happy to report that it grew very tall with a rather fetching horizontal section.

Just to say foxgloves would normally grow as biennials meaning after they've flowered this year they will die off but collect teh seed and sow them you'll get plants this year and flowers next year. hth!
