Our delphiniums (delphinia ?) are putting on a  very  fine  display  this  year , having spread themselves naturally from one stem a few years ago. The ones  pictured above are a goodish five foot tall.  I do  particularly like  the  white centred ones (which we put in last year, I think.

Delphiniums (or -a) always make me think of my parents' garden back in the 1960s. They went and bought new cultivars every year at the Chelsea Flower Show from Blackmore and Langdon and competed with the best blooms at the Norfolk Show. To get the flowers to open all along the stem at the same time, you had to put stems alternately in hot and cold water for hours, I seem to remember.
