Product Information

Stately spires of simply gorgeous flowers in a vibrant shade of bright blue will light up your borders this summer with these 'Magic Fountain' Delphiniums.

The flowers are borne on 2m stems that rise elegantly above clumps of divided green foliage and provide a vertical spectacle between June and late summer. They are perfect at the back of beds and borders and will instantly provide your garden with a cottage garden look.

Loved by bees and other pollinating insects, the flowers will attract wildlife into your garden, and they are also ideal for cutting so you can create wonderful floral displays indoors.

Cut stems to within 30cm of ground level when they start to wither in late autumn and then to ground level in March, before new growth appears.

Supplied as 6 x plug plants, ready to grow on before planting out.

Top Tips

Once first main stem has flowered, cut it down to allow new side shoots to flower.

Care Information

  • Before planting, prepare the soil by digging over and removing any weeds. Incorporate some well-rotted manure to enrich the soil if necessary.
  •  When planting a number of perennials, arrange them on the surface so you can see how they will look before planting.
  • Individually knock out each plant from its container.
  • Look at the roots if they are circling around the compost, it is best to tease them out. To do this, push your fingers into the rootball along the bottom edge and pull. Do this in a couple of places. This should encourage the roots to spread into the surrounding soil.
  • Next use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the rootball.
  • The aim is to bury just the roots, leaving the bases of the stems (when in growth in summer) or the shoots (in spring) above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas.
  • Water in well to settle the soil and prevent desiccation.
