6th January 2021. In line with the current government lockdown rules, Burncoose Nurseries is closed to visitors. However at present we are able to offer click and collect to local customers. This will be weekdays only, not weekends. Mail order is continuing as normal. However please allow extra time for the couriers to deliver, once despatched from us. Sorry to say that some depots are experiencing high volumes of traffic, also staff shortages.

DELPHINIUM

Sorry, but the plant you were looking for isn't available this year. Please try these alternatives.
All flower MAY-JUN

Another old cottage-garden favourite. To get the best display requires some fussing over. Greedy feeders and loved by slugs. Taller varieties need staking. Results can be spectacular.

Genus of about 320 species of annuals, biennials and perennials found mainly in mountainous areas worldwide, except Australia.

Main delphinium, or larkspur, cultivars are classed into Belladonna, Elatum or Pacific Hybrid groups
