#delphinium gorgeous color! But has anyone noticed these get less spectacular each year?

I have in fact found they do look (in general) less colorful, less blooms etc. after a bit of thought I realized that I had the same plants in same areas for years! So, each year they just had less and less nutrients as they have a constant diet, I hadn’t been adding what micro and macro nutrients were being used, Eureka! Though this might not be your issue, I hope it helps.

Thank you! It really is the simple things I often look over, like planting some of everything in an area and keep mulch turning and turning. Simple stuff=great rewards. And trim those branches! If you see some crazy long canes on nearly anything in mid summer or earlier, snip snip! I have never had a problem cutting back-rather, not pruning is what did some in... not that you don’t know this, just a tip for those that might not!

I'm so impressed, I've been nursing a starter #delphinium for over a month and it's a growing bundle of leaves slowly starting to shoot upwards. I can't wait till it's even this far into growing.

@kraeon it was a super tiny seedling last year... And I thought for sure it was killed in the snow during the winter... Then, surprise! Springtime! :)

@jennlamaye, I'm envious. I'm afraid mine won't make it by fall. But, hey, it's a learning experience for next season. :)

@Acetaker it'll come back! I always feel bad tidying up this bed because it looks sad when I am done, then a week or two later it looks great. :)

I hope some of them do. Some never got a chance to grow fully. The wildflowerbed just looked so bad and it looks rough now..I'm going to wait and if something comes bk then start trying to put more in...lol!

#jennseeds2018 #sowindoors #divide plants when new growth appears in Spring. If delphiniums need to be divided in the spring, remove and replant the new little plants growing around the outside of the clump. Discard the hard old heart.
