Re: todays events > acclimation

Well, Kitty,
    I can not help with the deer problem, but I can assist with the
Delphinium. If you want a delphinium that is easier than home made sin to
grow go for our native D. exaltatum. Stays up right with no staking when in
bloom. Deadhead and it will give you two to three flushes of bloom. Begins
blooming in June and continues on until winter. Read more about it on my
website under Garden Clippin's newsletter. It is my favorite delphinium of
all I have ever grown.
