I have a Delphinium that has finished flowering should I cut it back or leave it



I would cut the old flower spike off, since seed setting uses up a lot of the energy the plant needs to get ready for next year's growth and bloom.

Last Friday night, Monty Don on gardeners world suggested that you cut them right down and possibly get a second flush latter this year.
