So far I've been lucky with delphiniums and never had a slug problem with them. I'm aware that the danger ,period is when new shoots appear but I have already put up "keep out" signs. Bunny, I like the white ones too but the blues, if good ones, are best for me. Lupins make such an impact.....the only,problem I have with them is if weather is stormy....rain and strong winds can damage the fat spires. However, a couple of short canes discreetly supporting the fattest spikes prevents this This year I am growing some veronicastrums hoping they will give me the "delphinium" effect later in the summer. Not grown these before so anyone have experience of them?
