Plant stem damage

I wouldn't try splinting a delphinium - it's such soft tissue I think that damaged areas will be susceptible to infection which could spread to the whole plant. 

At this time of year the delphinium will grow new shoots to replace the lost one. 

I have successfully splinted a stronger shoot on    woody shrub and I've known it done on a young tree

Euphorbia lathyris 


oxalis (probably the pink flowered one)

Id definitely try to get rid of the alkanet unless you have a 'wilderness style'garden. 

Id try to get rid of the oxalis too. you won't succeed with either but try to control them. 

I like the euphorbia but not everyone does. If you decide to get rid of it don't get the white sap on your skin as it can cause burns when exposed to sunlight b
