I found beautiful foxglove plants at your store a month ago and they’ve been a beautiful addition to my garden! But now those first spikes are almost spent of flowers. I’ve read about cutting back the central spikes to encourage flowering of side shoots, but to keep them on if you want to promote reseeding. I do want to promote the reseeding in this area of the garden, but I also want them to keep flowering this year. What should I do? And if the answer is cut back, can you please explain in basic terms how to do that? The suggestions about going to the first floret or something like that makes zero sense to me novice gardening skills! Thank you! | Hewitts Garden Centers
