Thompson & Morgan have these foxgloves.

Note: if you want them to self seed year after year then don’t buy the Polka Dot Pippa one as it’s sterile and won’t set seed.
Growing the others from seed should all set seed. They only flower in their second year from seed though.

A fantastic bee friendly plant that does well in shaded areas or sunny spots. A true cottage garden flower.
