The Q&A Archives: Transplanting Delphiniums

Question: What is the proper time to divide and transplant delphiniums?

Thank you for your advise.

Answer: Delphiniums can be rather fussy plants, so in my experience the best time to do this is in early spring when the temperatures are cool and soil moisture is ample. Follow up care should be the same as for a newly planted delphinium -- keep an eye on the water.
