While admired for their tall, showy spikes of colourful flowers in the summer garden, delphiniums also have a reputation for being a gardening challenge. Delphinium enthusiast Christine Gill will share her secrets for success with us this evening, covering care and maintenance topics like preferred location in the garden, soil, watering, fertilization, vertical supports, pruning and common pests. As well, Christine will share tips for successfully growing this elegant perennial from seed.
A founding member of the 34-year old Ontario Delphinium Club (ondelphiniums.com), Christine Gill has a passion for growing and sharing her knowledge of English delphiniums. Christine is a popular speaker on a variety of horticultural subjects, an active member of several specialty horticultural societies, and an accredited horticultural judge through the RBG and Horticulture and Design Judge through the OHA.
