Caution: Irritant to skin and eyes. Harmful if eaten.
Sowing Time: February to June or September to October. Sow seed on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays. Cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Keep at a temperature of between 10-15C (50-59F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination can take 1-3 months.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 60cm (24in) apart. For best results, provide a sunny, sheltered site and a deep, fertile, well-drained soil.

Update 2012-08-19

An addition to my original posting. The plants have flowered with tall well formed spikes and the colours are fabulous, such an intense perple/deep blue. I have purchased some hardy perennial plugs from T & M and have received a dozen more plants that will be ready for next year.If the slugs and snails can be kept at bay I should be in for some spectacular display. If not another packet of seeds!

At last!!! 2012-07-31

I have never had much luck with delphiniums until now. They were sown in February in the greenhouse and all 8 seeds germinated. The plants are just starting to produce flower heads despite all the rain and the slugs and snails. For these I used slug pellets!. The plants are amazingly strong and I just hope the colours are to match, I will keep you posted.
