Cultivation Advice Delphinium Dwarf Magic Fountain Mixed

  • To maximise germination seeds should cold-treated (stratified) first.  Place the still-sealed packet in the salad drawer of the fridge for a week or two.
  • Surface sow from February to June on fine free draining compost and very lightly cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or fine vermiculite.   
  • Early sowings of this variety will flower in their first year.
  • Best placed in propagator 50-55F or inside a clear polythene bag in order to maintain humidity.  Exclude light until first seedlings show.
  • When large enough to handle transplant into pots and grow Delphinium plants on gradually acclimatizing to outdoors conditions after all risk of frost has passed.
  • Plant to final growing position when large enough 18in apart in moist well drained soil in full sun sheltered from strong winds.
  • Ensure young plants are protected from slugs and snails.
