    Firm favourites of the cottage garden, delphiniums can be used to help add structural interest to mixed or herbaceous borders with their impressive early- to midsummer flowerspikes. The 'Aurora Series' delphiniums are uniform in habit, and as the foliage is relativey small, they are also excellent for cutting.

  • Garden care: Stake with bamboo canes in mid-spring. During the growing season apply a balanced liquid fertiliser every 2-3 weeks and wearing gloves cut back the faded flower-stems to a flowering side-shoot. At the end of autumn cut back and compost the faded flower stems.
  • Harmful if eaten
