Delphinium is one of my favorite plants. Not sure if I can grow it here though. I like your roses too.

And mine,Paul,thank you..They are winter hardy here,and came through the worst of some of them..The Rose is called Fragrant Delight,and it lives up to it's name..I have two more doing well,from cuttings,now about the same size as this one..

Never seen a white one ... it's lovely.
I've got one that I've had for years in a pot, but never any flowers :( I live in hope lol ...

Magnificent Delphinium, a true giant. Wish we could grow things like this here in Scotland, Well done.

A beautiful one well staked too Bloomer :o)

I am sorry that they didn't all make it this year but the one you have is a stunner! Delphiniums are so susceptible to slugs and snails aren't they - ones we have put in have always been 'got at!'

Wow, that's a beauty! Don't think I've seen a white one either.

Thank you,Hywel,it was the luck of the draw from a packet of seeds..I expected blue ones,so I was a bit disappointed at first..Only three germinated..would you believe another White? and one blue..both succumbed this year,for the first time...I used to have mine in a pot,but they didn't do much..a lot better in the ground,as they like rich soil,and lots of water.
'''''''''''
Thank you,Amy,
I love the blue ones,but the seeds I bought from Chelsea were well past their sell by date..in a box in the fridge,which I forgot about :o) bought in 2008 ! anyway,I hadn't room for any more,or I would have tried some ..probably would have got more white ones :o)
'''''''''
Thank you,Outlander,a shame you can't grow them in Scotland..Is it because of your soil,or the weather? It has done very well this year..:o)shame the other two didn't !
'''''''''
You just want to check it's mine and not next door's,don't you Carole ? Lol. I want a photo of you standing next to it,as proof .:o) Looking forward to Saturday too,I need a break and some light relief,,after this week !
'''''''
Thanks Neena,I bought two of those supports last year,and they are ideal.You will see the one next to it,is sadly empty ! ..but I am training Caroles Lysimachias to grow through it,so all is not lost :o)
,,,,,,,
Thank you Chris,it is a bit of a looker,isn't it? :o) I really love it more,this year..I had them as my Avatar pic for most of last year..I might even have this one,for a change..:o)

Well done, put ours to shame they are very weedy looking...

Thanks,Angela..I look out on it from the Conservatory,so it's very pleasing to the eye :o)..That's a shame about yours,maybe next year they will be better.:o)

What a beauty, doesn't look as though it needs a support! I bought some baby ones this year, Guardian Blue, hope they become as lovely as this:-)

Thanks Ba,I used to have to stake them with canes,but had to use so many they looked really unsightly,so this is much better..Any heavy rain,makes it top heavy,and the wind plays havoc with them too..It is tied to the support as well,to stop it from leaning :o) I hope yours do well too.:o) x

Thank you Junna..I am flattered,but there are many more gardens on here,far superior to mine..but it is plenty big enough for my needs,so I am happy with it :o)
