Delphinium 'Pagan Purples (New Millennium Series)' (delphinium)

Delphinium ‘Pagan Purples (New Millennium Series)’ (delphinium) £7.99
Position: full sun Soil: fertile, well-drained soil Rate of growth: average Flowering period: June and July Hardiness: fully hardy Semi-double rich purple flowers are evenly spaced along the stout flower spikes, creating towering columns of colour. Their elegant, upright shape is useful for creating vertical interest in mixed planting schemes. Garden care: For best results, choose an open spot away from taller plants. Stake with bamboo canes as they start to shoot upwards in mid-spring and protect young foliage against slug and snail damage. 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 to encourage repeat flowering. At the end of autumn cut back and compost the faded flower stems.
