My favourite deep indigo blue delphinium, which flowers in May/June at Perch Hill and again in August/September.
No summer border or perennial cut flower patch is complete without its fair share of delphiniums – the most statuesque towering spires for any garden.
Feed regularly throughout their growing season and provide support. Cut flower spikes and leaves right to the ground in July and they will leaf up and flower again in August and September. Protect from slugs.
