Description

Delphinium 'Pure White' is a standout choice in our collection, carefully selected for its pristine appearance and exceptional qualities. With its stunning, luminous white blooms, it brings a sense of purity and textural interest to any garden space. Our head grower has favoured this variety due to its top-notch breeding, which provides strong, hardy and resilient plants that thrive in various conditions. Its upright growth habit and tall stems make it perfect for borders, where it adds some vertical interest and a splash of brightness among other perennials. This Delphinium variety is not only a visual beauty but also offers practical benefits. Its sturdy stems make it an excellent choice for cut flowers, providing long-lasting blooms in your bouquets and arrangements. Additionally, 'Pure White' Delphiniums are known for their hardiness and ability to withstand challenging weather conditions. Whether incorporated into cottage-style gardens, formal landscapes, or mixed borders, 'Pure White' Delphiniums never fail to impress. Their timeless beauty and versatility make them a valuable addition to any garden. We particularly enjoy seeing 'Pure White' planted en masse in urban settings or in mixed perennial borders.

Planting Conditions

Delphiniums thrive in well-drained, fertile soil with a neutral to slightly alkaline pH. Choose a planting location with full sun exposure, as they require at least six hours of sunlight daily for optimal growth and blooming. Before planting, incorporate organic matter like compost into the soil to improve its structure and fertility. Plant Delphiniums in early Spring or early Autumn, spacing them about 18 to 24 inches apart. Provide support stakes or cages to prevent tall varieties from bending or toppling over in windy conditions. With proper planting conditions, Delphiniums will flourish and grace your garden with their stunning blooms.

Watering & Feeding

For thriving Delphiniums, maintain consistent soil moisture by watering deeply whenever the top inch of soil feels dry, especially during dry spells. Avoid overhead watering to prevent fungal diseases. Feed with a balanced fertiliser during the growing season, applying it around the base of the plants every 4-6 weeks. In Spring, incorporate a slow-release fertiliser into the soil during planting. Mulch around the plants to retain moisture and suppress weeds. With proper watering and feeding, Delphiniums will reward you with vigorous growth and abundant, colourful blooms.

General Care

To care for Delphiniums, secure tall flower spikes to stakes to prevent them from bending or breaking in strong winds. Deadhead spent flowers regularly to encourage continuous blooming. After the first flush of flowers in late May or early June, perform the "Chelsea Chop" by cutting the plant back by half. This technique promotes a second flush of blooms later in the Summer. Additionally, remove any yellowing or damaged foliage throughout the growing season to maintain plant health and aesthetics. With proper care, Delphiniums will thrive and produce beautiful blooms throughout the Summer months.
