Unreliable Delphiniums

Fanfare 2017One of the pleasures of gardening is the surprise of unseasonal flowering.  You can never be precise with your predictions and the vagaries of weather and climate can make the art of designing planting companions tricky and the planning of events in a public garden a real headache.  This year the Elatum Delphinium collection is bursting into exuberant flower a month before our Delphinium Festival!

We’ll be keeping them watered and praying for a bit of cooler weather to keep them going to the end of June.
