Blue has been my favourite colour for as long as I can remember. It is a colour that is quite hard to have represented in the garden without it moving into the purple/mauve/lilac spectrum. I have just finished reading May’s edition of The Garden which features the Himalayan Blue Poppies (Meconopsis) on its cover but they can be tricky to grow particularly in southern England. However. in my garden at the moment is the most beautiful blue delphinium I have ever seen, such a stunning colour. What makes me really want to skip around in joy is that this one was grown from seed!
