Don’t let your delphiniums waste their energy on setting seed. If you cut back the faded flower stems now, they’ll redirect their efforts into producing fresh new growth and hopefully a new flower stem that will bloom in a couple of months. Monty Don shows you how, with the spectacular Delphinium ‘Pacific Giant King Arthur’, in this short video clip from Gardeners’ World.
