My delphiniums aren't showing yet but I noticed a job for this week is taking cuttings from delphiniums.  What is that all about?  I would love to be taking cuttings but there is nothing there….  Is it referring to splitting the roots?

    we're in Devon, and we have shoots. Bookmark the page and come back to it when yours grow.

  • Thanks Hostafan.  Will they flower this year if I take cuttings when they start shooting?

    Hi PG - my delphs are also not showing yet but last week I dug one up as I wanted to plant something else in that spot.

    The underground plant was fat, firm, with lots of subterraneum shoots and just about bursting with life - so I decided to split it into 4 & replant elsewhere. I am not 100% sure they will take but it felt so right to do it and I think I've been gardening long enough to trust my instinct on this one.
