Grow Notes
Prefers full sun but is also happy in part shade, it thrives in well-drained soils. Lupins are nitrogen fixing and don’t need to much fertiliser but you can use animal manures.

Sow

The seeds should be sown during spring, summer or autumn in individual jiffy pots, seed modules or small pots.

  1. Soak the lupin seeds for 24 hours in cold water or nick the outer seed coat with a knife to promote even germination.
  2. Plant out when quite small, as lupin seeds develop a taproot and resent disturbance to their roots.

Germination
5 -12 days at 18-22°C

Pruning lupins

  1. Remove fading flowers promptly before the hairy pods swell, to prevent the plant from going to seed and reducing its vigour.
  2. This will encourage a second flush of flowers later in summer, although these will be smaller than the first spikes.
  3. In autumn or after the first frost, cut the stems back down to the ground.
