New plants for the flowerbed near the kitchen

As the slugs have eaten a whole load of the new plants I’d put in, the flowerbed near the kitchen has been looking a bit bare (which, realistically, means more bloody creeping yellow buttercup).  I had a load of foxglove seedlings in the cold frame that were getting a bit leggy – the instructions on the packet said to plant them out in October but no chance.

So I ended up putting a load in the wildflower meadow, the lower garden, the upper bank, the bed at the bottom of the garden and the bed by the kitchen (I had loads of plants).

These are a bit leggy – I hope they become more cabbagy soon

I assume that (as they are poisonous) the slugs won’t eat them.  They aren’t terribly pretty as the plants but when they flower they are glorious – for about three weeks.
