While we receive lots of kind compliments for our range of plants few that we offer receive the same scale of effusive praise as Dowdeswell's Delphiniums!
Dowdeswell’s Delphiniums is a family owned Delphinium nursery in Whanganui New Zealand that is recognised worldwide for their superb breeding work. Plants raised from their hand pollinated seed are much better than cheaper strains such as Pacific Giants or Magic Fountains. Dowdeswell’s delphiniums have all the beauty of the best English varieties and are soundly perennial and will give joy for many years to come if their few wants are satisfied.
Dowdeswell’s delphiniums are repeat bloomers and make exciting cut flowers. They are best planted in a well drained position in full sun. Plant 90-100cm between plants. We offer strong flowering size plants. These dormant plants are deeply frost hardy, ideal for planting now to maximise growth and available only while stocks last.
These good strong well-grown plants will be supplied in their winter dormancy with vigorous new shoots ready to emerge.
