Plant replacement

Mary370Mary370 Posts: 2,003

Hi, I've decided to get over my sentimentality and decided I need to remove my 5 year old lupin, as it has become woody and produces less flowers.

Can I immediately plant an astible in it's place, or should I leave it for a few weeks?

    No need to wait Mary. If you can revitalise the soil a bit with some compost your new astilbe will appreciate it. They do like to be kept well watered - esp in the 1st season

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
