Growing Turkish Delight Delphiniums

Delphiniums prefer full sun, with well-drained fertile soil. They're tall, so position towards the back of a south- or west-facing border, with a bit of space around them so that their leaves aren't shaded much.
If your site is exposed to the wind, you'll need to stake them in late spring, before the foliage really gets growing.

Slugs and snails can ruin young plants, so be prepared.

Feed every 2-3 weeks in the flowering season, and cut back spent flower stems promptly in order to encourage a second, less dramatic, flowering at the end of summer. Cut back everything in late Autumn.

In Your Garden Design

A classic among cottage garden perennials, delphiniums grow up to create the most wonderful pillars whose vertical accents contrast handsomely with the rounded, spreading and fan shapes of your other border perennials, especially at the back of the border with our cottage garden pink collection for a ready-made colour match.

This stately delphiniums combine beautifully with roses like 'Happy Pearl Wedding' or in front of a wall planted with a lovely rambler such as 'The Garland' or 'Alberic Barbier', intertwined perhaps with Clematis 'Belle of Woking'. Penstemon 'Valcano Fujiyama' works well, as does Lupin 'Masterpiece' or inded Iberis 'Masterpiece'.

Did You Know?

Flowers like rose petals and jasmine are a traditional ingredient in Turkish delight and, perhaps more recently, lavender, but Delphiniums are not good to eat, despite how appealing they look.

Blackmore & Landon has been breeding delphiniums since 1901. Family-run to this day, the company has been a fixture at The Chelsea Flower Show since the show's inauguration at the Royal Hospital, Chelsea in 1913.
