On plant Delphinium



you can do either. so if you have itchy fingers [well we all do dont we?] why not sow some now and then the rest in the spring. remember to label your pots lol

put them outside where they wont get too hot or dry out too quickly.

if they get to a decent size before the autumn they can be transplanted out straight away.

they survive in the winter as they tend to die back. you will have to mark where you plant them so you dont dig them up by mistake. or you can leave the dead stems on to show where they are. but mine disappear totally once i have taken the flower stem out.

fresh seed is more likely to germinate than seed sat around all winter. In nature the plant would seed to the ground and start its germination cycle immediately.
