Expert authors bring all their expertise and enthusiasm to this book, which is a much-awaited publication on a plant that offers much to the gardener. Introducing both wild and cultivated delphiniums and discussing breeding and the use of the flowers in the garden, the book also covers cultivation and propagation and talks about the pests and diseases that affect delphiniums.
