Delphinium hybrid Pacific Giants pink
Also known as ‘larkspur’ it’s a fine plant for the early summer border , the soft pink tones mellow in with the fresh green colours during the early summer months. The plants have tall spikes loaded with large wonderful flowers, cut back old spikes mid summer and they will flower again before the summer is over.
Slugs adore Delphiniums so young tender plants need protection and as Delphiniums grow so tall they make need staking for support.

How to take care of Pacific Giants Pink
Plant Pacific Giants Pink in a sunny to semi shady, sheltered location. Pacific Giants Pink are heavy feeders and thrive in rich soils. Water well after planting and place some stakes around the planting site for support.
If planted in autumn, apply mulch to protect them from frost. During the growing season keep soil moist at all times, especially young plants. This perennial is short lived and needs replacing every few years.
Once established add fertilizer once a month until after they have bloomed. Remove flower heads as they fade and cut back flower spikes after bloom.
PLEASE NOTE: Harmful if eaten especially the roots. Wear gloves handling Pacific Giants Pink and do not plant near vegetables. If supplied as bare roots please soak them for 12-18 hours (do not exceed 24 hours).
This allows them to take up the maximum amount of water without doing any injury to the plant.
