Why are my foxgloves dying before in full bloom?

I have a few foxgloves that I planted in autumn that have just began to produce flowers but are dying before they have bloomed. The leaves around the base are browning and drying up. They are watered regularly and all I can think is that it is too hot. Do you know why this is happening? Thanks.

Flowers and Ornamentals • Physical Damage

Yes, you are right about the heat affecting foxgloves. They prefer to grow in cool and temperate areas however if temperatures rise sporadically or if there are spells of windy weather they will begin to die down. With the unpredictable conditions experienced this year nationwide this is a common occurrence particularly in temperate areas.
