I LOVE growing giant flowers! Last year it was the fairy infested foxglove, this year it’s the delphinium.
While wading through this unbelievably beautiful jungle makes my heart skip a beat, I think I may have gotten a little carried away with our fertility program this spring ; )
If you too want giant flowers, here’s the secret. Lot’s of high quality compost! We top dress with 3-4″ in the spring and again in the fall. A healthy dose of an organic granular fertilizer at planting time. I love Nature’s Intent 9-3-4. And if you can make or score some compost tea, apply it every week either as a foliar spray or a root drench.
That and lots of love is all you need to grow giant, 10ft tall delphinium and any other monster flowers your heart desires!
