    From planting to harvest 12 weeks.

  • Planting Density

    25 plants/sq-m.net or 2 plants/sqft. net.

  • Pre-planting

    Soil: Well drained, loose soil with no clusters, at least 25 cm (10 in.) deep.

    Netting: Optional lateral wiring.
    Organic fertilizer is recommended.

  • Prunning

    Optional.
    Leave between 2 to 3 cm (1 to 2 in.) of the stems.
    If no drip irrigation is available, do a higher pruning.
    Always seal the wound to avoid infection.

  • Irrigation

    Beds should be well watered before planting. Begin production with overhead irrigation. Then switch to drip irrigation one (1) week following transplant.
    Keep constant moisture (field capacity) during five (5) weeks after planting and then reduce irrigation by 50%.
    At the end of harvesting, discontinue irrigation one (1) week before prunning and restart at 30% one week after prunning.
    As leaves appear increase irrigation gradually to 100%.

  • Fertilization

    Use Nitrogen and Potassium: 160 ppm.
    Delphinium absorbs little nourishment at the beginning of its cropping time but increases its absorption at its latter period of growth.
    A general fertilization formula could be the following:
    Nitrogen: 80-100 ppm
    Phosphorus: 40-50 ppm
    Potasium: 150-180 ppm
    Calcium: 120-130 ppm.
    E.C: 1.5

  • Harvest

    Harvest stage should be 40% to 50% aperture.

  • PostHarvest treatment

    Place the flowers immediately after cutting in a solution to prevent ethylene damage such as STS for 4 hours.
    Pre-cool to 1°C (33°F) prior to shipping for best postharvest quality and vase life.
