Foxgloves are beloved by bumblebees and flower until September. Plant the minuscule seeds into trays now for beautiful, nectar-rich blooms next year.

SET TO SEED
August sees thoughts turning to new terms and new seasons. Start letting flowers run to seed to provide food for birds when autumn arrives.
