Lupins

Hi, a couple of years back I planted out lots of Lupins that I grew from seed and for the past 2 years had amazing shows...now this year I'm worried as I'm sure the folage was coming up through the soil by this time...or am I wrong?....As yet I can see nothing!

    Mine are up but still small. I have them in pots near the house though which might keep them a little warmer. Be wary of slugs as they love them.



    I saw some in B&Q for 10p for 6 a few days ago, absolutely kicking myself for not picking them up. Lovely plants.

    I bought some rooty bits in a packet for 29p. Put them in pots in my cold frame and they are all growing. Bargain? Not sure what colours they will be. All 3 look healthy. image

    Mines the same, the one from last year isn't showing any signs of new growth. I don't know if its dead or not. Glad I sowed some seeds from it last year.

    Mine are the same, but usually are the same each year , they do come back this frost has stunted them a bit. I pulled some pieces off the other day with bit of root and potted them up in greenouse, coming along great and will give me some more spares. I do this each year now , mine are dwarf white .

  • My lupins are up already......but the snails have already appeared as well. I know it's the age old question for gardeners everywhere but what is the best cure for this problem???? I like to avoid pellets/chemicals if I can. At the moment I am picking them off regularly.........
