Do Lupins

Have a second flower or is that it after the first bloom?


  • If you cut the faded flower spike off will flower again and maybe even a third time , but flower spike tends to be shorter.

    Like many plants, they send up further smaller spikes, so if you deadhead the main ones once they're over,  the plant puts it's energy into the smaller ones and gives you a second display image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

  • Great! Can't wait. Thank youimage

  • Does the same apply to foxgloves?

    Yes, and a bit of extra water helps things along, too.
