oh sorry but as i scrolled down it did make me laugh has it enough water? my dahlias droop after a days sun and have to water them to revive them. the leaves in both pics look a bit droopy too.

they are watered regular twice a day especially in this heat. Is there anything else I can do?
Give it some shade?
Hi Sharon74, yes I think it needs some shade too. I've got some lupins that I grew from seed this year so I'm not actually putting them in the garden until next year. Unfortunately I left them in the potting shed last night and some leaves were all curled up this morning as it was so hot in there. I watered them and have put them in the shade outside and they seem to have recovered.
Lupins put down a long tap root and don't do well in containers. Give it a drink in the mean time but try to find somewhere in the garden for it. It'll do much better in the ground.
