Delphinium Plants for Sale

Growing Delphiniums is not hard but they are heavy feeders, so for the best success be sure to prepare your garden spot with plenty of rich organic matter. The more compost the better! After the Delphiniums are done blooming you can cut them close to the ground for a second bloom.and what they lack in delicacy is made up by the contribution made by their huge solid blocks of colour. Delphinium plants are best suited for the back of flower beds or mixed borders, particularly effective planted en masse. Preferring a consistently moist soil, they love the gentle morning sun but don't like extreme differences in temperature, so some afternoon shade in hotter, southern parts of the UK is preferable. Consider staking in more exposed sites.

As our Elatum Delphiniums are produced from cuttings, we can only produce as many plants as our stock plants allow. This means that some varieties may sell out quicker than others. If the variety you want is sold out we do take delphinium orders which can be collected from the Nursery or from Plant Fairs we are attending (unfortunately we do not currently provide a mail order service). Payment for these orders is not taken until the plant is collected. In 2017, 2018 and 2019 we were awarded Gold for our Delphinium display within the Floral Marquee at Blenheim Palace Flower Show, and in June 2018 and again in June 2019, we were delighted to be awarded Silver Gilt for our Delphinium display at RHS Chatsworth.Some companion plants that provide season-long color with Delphiniums are Coneflowers, Dahlias, Daylilies, or Ornamental grasses.
