Seedlings were fine but probably because of the weather flowering was poor.

Pretty and long flowering. Became straggly and fell over- I suspect they were meant to be pinched out pretty early. That was disappointing, as I grew them to dry.

All the little plugs survived and are still flowering well, despite the cold wet spring and the hot dry summer. The colour combination couldn't be better. Vase life is excellent. I would have given 5 stars if it wasn't for the short stalks I'm getting now. Much more reliable than seeds from scratch.

I love delphiniums and have grown Larkspur from seed for the first time this year, they have bloomed fantastically, I have been picking big bunches for 2 weeks and have already bought another pack of seeds for next year, definitely recommend them.
