Do my laurels need a chop?

Derek,,they are fine but, yes, I also think you would benefit from cutting further 

Please help me figure out what's happening.

The second flush has numerous full spikes in excess pf 150 cm....as good as first in May/june.  No, third flush usually is less impressive but still handy during mid autumn.  I find delphiniums to last about 3 or 4 years so next season should be good too but basal cuttings will make up for that.


delphiniums are such good value plants ....I grow several clumps 


you gotta admit, it did look like a worm.  Ha ha 

The difference

Maybe....but it is another little gem.  Been flowering here from early May and still has one or two left.

I persuaded someone on the forum to grow hordeum J last year.  A more colourful version of stipa tennuissima.  like a rainbow reflecting sun's rays etc.  Lovely grass.  It is a short term perennial here often flowering second year too
