Catmint, I just got my first delphinium; couldn't resist the Santa Rosa sale!
On their website, it says to keep mulch away from the base of the plants.
They need well-draining soil (awfully hard to find in my yard!) so I'm going to plant mine on a slope and hope for the best. I'm wondering if I should plant it in a container with super fast-draining soil. I got a dwarf, non-floppy delphinium, so it would do fine in a container. Also, I can just move it underneath the patio umbrella when it gets too hot.
I just talked myself into planting it in a container!
Good tip about New Millennium hybrids!
First time I'm hearing of this hybrid.
