A cottage garden staple, Delphiniums will bring height and colour to your herbaceous border.  Much loved by bees they also make a lovely cut flower to bring indoors.

Best known for their vivid blue sapphire flowers they also come in paler shades of pink, blue and cream and can grow over 2m tall!

Delphiniums like well-drained soil and a sunny position sheltered from strong winds (they may need staking if they grow very tall).  Feed weekly through summer with a high-potash fertiliser. After flowering, cut stems back to encourage a second flush of blooms.
