    Mail order woes. Money taken but no plants please help

    @Spruce I've used Chris Bowers several times, most recently this year for bare rooted fruit trees. Always found them excellent and a fantastic selection of varieties. Would certainly recommend them.

    Over Wintering Watering??

    Im going to leave my Delphiniums in pots. They have all started to show new growth. I was wondering though should I cut this off as the frosts approach or leave it on to die over winter?

    I'd say overwatering rather than underwatering, and has it been on the decline for some time.I'm sorry, but I think its probably dead.
