It's probably just in shock from the move! Make sure you keep it watered....your compost is fine. You'd be better off looking around that old garden again, and see if you can find some younger foxglove plants...they will transplant better, and once you have them in your garden will self-seed and you'll have them for ever.

Yes, I presume it will, as long as it actually survives the transplantation.
