Upright and elegant semi-double, rich blue-purple flowers, almost iridescent in colour, with towering spires make this delphinium a fantastic choice for summer borders, giving vertical interest to the summer border. A more robust and larger flowered delphinium, ‘Pagan Purples’ requires a fertile soil in a sunny spot with room to spread. The flowering spikes will eventually reach up to 120cm in height and with a long flowering season ‘Pagan Purples’ will add a touch of glamour to your garden and the bees will be buzzing around this elegant plant.
This taller variety of delphinium will probably need staking so use a bamboo cane once they start to shoot in mid-spring and loosely tie in the plants as they grow.

These Jumbo plug plants would benefit from potting into large pots (13cm upwards) for a few weeks before planting out in the garden. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 5cm deep x 5cm square. Foliage height 5cm-20cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.
Delphiniums are generally hardy perennials. They like room to grow, so for the best results give them some space and a sunny spot in the garden with some partial shade throughout the day. The soil needs to be fertile and well-drained. During the growing season use a balanced liquid fertiliser every 2-3 weeks.
The new shoots can be susceptible to slug and snail damage, so be vigilant. You can apply slug pellets around the base of the plants or if you prefer a more natural approach, sprinkle slug deterrents like crushed egg shells or a generous amount of coarse gravel chips around the plants; slugs prefer not to cross an uneven surface.
As the main flower stems fade, cut them back to a flowering side-shoot. This will encourage more flowers throughout the season. In autumn once the stems die back, they can be composted, and the ground mulched to protect the crown of the plants from the harsh frosts of winter. Fresh growth will reappear in spring.
Wonderful service as usual and exceptionally good quality plants. They are growing on well and if they carry on like this I will have an excellent display of Delphiniums this year. Can't recommend Brookside more highly.
