Delphiniums – Queen of the Border

Lucia Sahin Delphinium SpikeAt Home Farm Plants (Bovingdon) we are passionate about Delphiniums and have built up a specialist Delphinium section.

Our Delphiniums are the Elatum species which are tough, hardy perennials. They can withstand very cold winter temperatures and are reliable garden perennials. We not only have the traditional blues, but different shades of pinks, purples, white and cream, all flowering from the end of May through to September, on the Nursery for you to see.

Named varieties are taken from cuttings from January/February onwards and will be available from the Nursery from June onwards. Numbers are very limited dependent on variety so please contact us for a full list of varieties and their availability. Have a look at our Gallery.

Delphinium Orders

As our Elatum Delphiniums are produced from cuttings, we can only produce as many plants as our stock plants allow. This means that some varieties may sell out quicker than others. If the variety you want is sold out we do take delphinium orders which can be collected from the Nursery or from Plant Fairs we are attending (unfortunately we do not currently provide a mail order service). Payment for these orders is not taken until the plant is collected.

In 2011 and 2015 we were awarded Best In Show at The Delphinium Society Show, based at RHS Wisley.

In 2017, 2018 and 2019 we were awarded Gold for our Delphinium display within the Floral Marquee at Blenheim Palace Flower Show, and in June 2018 and again in June 2019, we were delighted to be awarded Silver Gilt for our Delphinium display at RHS Chatsworth.
