I have not seen the variety illumination pink before and am interested in growing one. Where did you get yours from as they are quiet expensive £15 for 3 plants. I like the fact they are sterile and wont spread anywhere.

My dahlia spouted really quickly so very pleased with that. I am in the same boat of having every windowsill full as its too cold to put stuff into my mini greenhouse. Went to local nursery and he was very downbeat due to the cold affecting his buisness he was even selling stuff cheap as the cold was killing plants off. I overheard the B and Q manager speaking to staff saying it was a nightmare as they were having to sell stuff off.

The same thing is starting to happen again. I just dont understand it everything else is doing really well. These have not been grown under lights

So far i have eliminated: Growing under lights, container depth, moisture levels.

I dont thinks its damping off as its the leaves that go brown the stems dont collapse imediately. The window they are on is west facing.

Anyone growing delphiniums, is it normal for stems to be quite fragile. Got plenty growing now and the plants are getting bigger with the better weather. Lost a few lobelia to the cold but everything else seems fine so far however my lobelia cardinalis have stayed quite small for the time being. my dahlia tuber has sprouted also.
