My Delphiniums are growing well, but they don't have flowers all the way up the stem. There are some flowers, then a gap of about 7 inches, then more flowers. What can I do to get the flowers to cover the stem?



nothing i am afraid. they have probably been grazed off by a slug or snail. after flowering cut the spent flower stem off and you ay well get another spike later in the year.

Thanks. I'll make sure I'm earlier with the slug pellets next year!
