Help identify Delphinium disease

Posted by benawhile none (My Page) on

I have two Delphinium plants purchased about a month ago from a local garden centre which seem to be diseased.
They have been under attack from slugs but think I have controlled the slugs now with pellets and beer. Maybe too late.
I have kept them well watered, also put down some home composted mulch, which may not have been a good idea. I am a novice gardener and the compost may have been diseased.
and I am not sure of the diagnosis. I have read about Delphinium blight, but this plant has been in this condition for a couple of weeks without actually collapsing.
Should this plant be uprooted?
Can I get a refund from the supplier if they are this badly diseased?
Many thanks

RE: Help identify Delphinium disease

what kind of delphinium ... annual or perennial

and we need a picture..

and most delphs.. are in decline.. past their best part of the season ... it may simply be 'normal' ... especially with the late transplant ... especially if you are in an area with severe heat and drought.. where are you ???
