Foxglove ( Digitalis) have beautiful flowers and it is known to stimulate the growth of plants near it. It makes the neigboring plants disease resistant. It improves the storage qualities of fruits and vegetables and root vegetables probably due to gaseous secretions and minute hormones. Good luck.

From experience, I can honestly say that foxglove is great, interplanted with anything, although the biggest gains (for no reason that I can explain!) were with garlic- we grow a really cool "walking" garlic (the seed bulb sets on top), and it really seems to give the garlic a boost. This was in Northwestern Washington State- I don't know if you're growing things up north, or where, but it's a big help in the garden in the damp, cooler northern climate. Good luck- you're making a great investment for your family's health! :o)
