Janice and I are retiring and looking for a passionate plant person, or people, to take over our very enjoyable and lucrative delphinium breeding and seed producing business.
Dowdeswell's Delphiniums is still experiencing growth since expanding a few years ago and demand for our seeds and new varieties requires that it expands even further. Recently the company has bred shorter delphiniums aimed at the small garden and pot sectors as well as delphiniums for the cut flower trade. More of these varieties are in process and will be introduced in the near future. The opportunity to capitalise and expand on this breeding is a significant and very real business advantage.
Dowdeswell's Delphiniums Ltd supply customers all over the world with their high quality seeds and plants
We are marketing the very best of our new hybrids and seedlines under the name New Millennium™ Delphiniums. Delphiniums labelled New Millennium™ Delphiniums are top of the range, and the label is reserved for delphiniums bred by us. These delphiniums are of the "English Hybrid Type", which are mostly very hardy, strong stemmed delphiniums, with magnificent heavily petalled flowers. Our best mother stock is used for hand crossing to produce F¹ seed. This seed gives plants of excellent form and colour.
