In ancient Greece the Delphinium flower was believed to possess magical properties, and in Medieval England the plant's roots were used to make love potions (not recommended as it's actually poisonous!). Today, the Delphinium is a country garden favourite and you might have seen the tall, delicate flowers blooming during summer in the UK and across the world. The most common colour is blue, and traditionally the flowers were used to make dye and ink – its colour signifying dignity and grace. First released as the Summer instalment of TOFT's Four Seasons Flora Society, we are delighted that the Delphinium is now joining the rest of Kerry Lord's crochet garden.
Alexandra’s Garden kits are a range of amigurumi crochet characters that bring to life a collection of much-loved plants and flowers, making them perfect for the budding gardener or crafter. With no watering required, the TOFT crochet flower range is low maintenance, always in bloom and guaranteed to brighten up your home all year round!
