Delphinium Jill Curley


Ancient Greeks thought the flower bud looked like a dolphin, hence the name Delphinium. Often thought of as an old cottage garden favourite, they give often much needed height to borders with a graceful elegant charm. With stunning semi-double crisp white flowers, Jill Curley is very floriferous, has extremely sturdy stems, and would look amazing in even the most modern garden. Prefers well drained soil in sun. Height 1.5m (5'). Spread 60cm (24“). Hardy perennial.

Additional Information

The plants when fully grown may need staking for support. In growth water all plants freely, applying a liquid fertiliser every 3-4 weeks. Dead-head by cutting back spent flowers spikes back to small flowering side shoots. Cut back all growth to the ground level after it has withered in the autumn. All parts may cause severe discomfort if eaten and contact with foliage may irritate skin. Propagate by sowing seed in the spring. Hardy perennial. Young plants are attractive to slugs, may need protection until bigger.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
