PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Sowing time/depth Autumn, Spring, 0.15in/3mm
A beautiful plant which is seldom seen in the UK, Requin's larkspur produces spikes of soft, brownish-blue flowers, reminiscent of orchids, above attractive, shiny leaves (which, unlike those of other delphiniums, are said to be of no interest to slugs and snails). Usually grown as a biennial, but will flower in the first year if sown early. It will usually gently self-seed, although it is probably safer to save seed for sowing later.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow seed 0.15in/3mm deep in good quality seed compost in autumn and keep in a cold frame; alternatively, sow at 55F/13C in early spring. Transfer seedlings into individual pots and plant out when plants are large enough, in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun or part-shade.
