Which month can I buy delphinium plants at the gc? I'd like to attempt growing them next year. I don't have a greenhouse or anything for seeds. How much sun do they need?



I have them in mainly sun. You may still get them in gc but they are coming to the end of the flowering period. I have found them reduced at this time of year because of the lack of flowers. They are easy from seed and you dont need a greenhouse. A couple of pots of good compost and a warm windowsill in Feb to set seeds going.

Thanks!! Sorry I didn't show my apprecition at the time, quite remiss of me :0(

I managed to find some dwarf delphs (5) at the GC. They flowered till August/Sept and then died a death over the winter. Do they come back to life or not, in other words are they perennial?
many thanks
