Description

Grow some lupin plants nobody will have seen before! Occasionally, in our trial grounds, self-sown hybrid plants appear between beds of different lupins such as Russell-type lupins and various forms of both tree and prostrate lupins. Seeds from these unusual, and sometimes quite bizarre flowers have been collected, and the results, predictably, give plants of all shapes, colours, and sizes, and some low and weeping forms may also occur!

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
