Planting Conditions

The Delphinium Rose White Bee thrives in full sunlight but can also grow in partial shade. When planting, it's essential to ensure that the soil is well-draining to prevent waterlogging. This plant prefers slightly acidic to neutral soil with a pH of 6.0 to 7.5. It's also important to consider the planting position of the Delphinium Rose White Bee. As it can grow up to 5 feet tall, it's best to plant it in the back of a garden bed or against a wall or fence to provide support for its long stems. Avoid planting it in low-lying areas where water can collect or in areas that are susceptible to strong winds, as this can cause the plant to become damaged or topple over. Overall, the Delphinium Rose White Bee is a stunning addition to any garden, and proper planting position and soil conditions will ensure it thrives and produces beautiful blooms.

Watering & Feeding

Delphinium Rose White Bee needs regular watering to keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. During hot and dry weather, it may require watering twice a week. It's important to water the plant deeply to ensure the roots are hydrated, but be careful not to overwater as this can lead to root rot. Mulching around the plant can help retain moisture in the soil. Feeding the plant with a balanced fertiliser is recommended during the growing season, from spring to summer. A slow-release fertiliser can be applied at the base of the plant, or a liquid fertiliser can be used as a foliar spray. Follow the instructions on the fertiliser package for the appropriate amount and frequency of application. Be careful not to overfeed as this can lead to excessive foliage growth and reduced flowering.

General Care

The Delphinium Rose White Bee is a beautiful and delicate plant that requires a specific planting position, watering, and feeding to thrive. It prefers full sun and well-draining soil in a sheltered location. Watering is crucial during the growing season, and the plant benefits from regular feeding with a balanced fertiliser. General care includes pruning to promote new growth, staking to support tall flower spikes, and monitoring for pests and diseases. With proper care, this plant can produce stunning white flowers with a unique dark center, adding a touch of elegance to any garden or landscape.
