Noticed a foxglove in the veg bed..

Headed off  to attend the Loughcrew yearly mass earlier on today,and then on to visit the Loughcrew Historic Gardens. Meet up with some friends and everyone enjoyed the day out.Having arrived home at around 5 pm it was down the garden to check on things there.Also to see that all was well in both tunnell and greenhouse.Nothing else done in the garden today.

Now, would that be classified as a weed - being a plant growing in the wrong place?

It could be classed as one Marian.We had some foxgloves planted app 3mts from the veg bed in the centre flower bed.The foxglove [Digitalis] has appeared in that same area in the veg bed for a good few years now.Colour not always the same as previous year sometimes.I often taught about getting rid of it but never did.The foxgloves have been removed from the centre bed a few years back.I figured that the foxgloved was at the edge of the veg bed from some seed blown there at the end of flowering.

John, I would love a piece of the white foxglove if possible for my woodland garden... if possible?
