Genus Delphinium
Variety Black Knight and Summer skies
Type Hardy Perennial
Border Position Back
Soil Type Chalky, Neutral
Scent Unscented
Site Full Sun, Part Shade
Moisture Moist but Well-drained, Well-drained
Height 150cm (5ft)
Spacing Plant 50cm (20in) apart - best in groups of 3 or more. 75cm (30in) spread.
Sowing, Seeds, Planting Sow under cover March-April and/or August. Pot on until roots fill a 9cm pot.
Care Tips Correct spacing is important to avoid mildew. Stake to prevent them flopping. Cut the flower spikes and leaves right to the ground in July and they will leaf up and flower again in August and September.
Flowering June-July and/or August-September, will flower the following year after sowing seed
Vase Life These should last 7 days in the vase. For tall spikes a cane can be inserted into hollow stem to prevent bending and breaking. Pick when most flowers are open. Do not put near fruit bowls as they are senstive to ethylene gas which is omitted when fruit ripens.

Have ordered lots of plants from this website and have always been delighted with the results.
Planted these last Autumn as directed now in July and no sign of them.
Everything else is flourishing!
