My delphiniums won't flower

Posted: 26/06/2017 at 23:04

Like Paul said they do prefer full sun.

I would cut down on the fish blood and bone, one application at the beginning of the season is good enough and a feed after flowering, you can get a second flush of flowers if cut to the ground just before the flowers finish. You maybe unintentionally over feeding them which normally encourage leaf growth at the expense of flowers.

Hi Lyn  , I thought that as well. I were looking at some red ones on Dobies website a while back and say no dead heading 

I am trying some F1 super cascading red petunia I got of ebay this year well, they are  doing well but havent got the trailing habit I was expecting, more of a upright growth at the moment.

I've grown - wave petunia - from seed last year and this year, far superior to normal trailing petunias and as good as surfinia and they trail like mad. Seeds can be hard to come by but are getting more popular, wave petunia are America equivalent to European surfinias. Wave petunia are better for me cause they stand up to the wind a lot better and dont snap like surfinias. they don't need dead heading apparently but I did last year just in case.

They are lovely Iamweedy , the one to the right at its widest bit is about 17-18cm wide  . They are expensive but I am getting some more. The leaves are really broad so will need a bit of room.

Bulb advice (tulips, alliums)

I dont think it matters what you do. If you know where you want to plant them get them planted, otherwise store them until you know where to plant them.
