Lupin Seeds 'Russell Mixed' by Mr Fothergills
Impressive early summer colour year after year. Superb in groups or in a border.
Sow indoors for surest results, March-June, 1.5cm (½”) deep, in a tray of compost.
Water well and place in a cold frame, unheated greenhouse, or on a warm kitchen windowsill.
Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 21-28 days.
Transplant individually, when large enough to handle, to 7.5cm (3") pots.
Always hold by a leaf, never by the stem. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions,
before planting out into well-drained soil, May-October, 60cm (2') apart.
Or, sow thinly, outdoors, April-July, in a seed bed, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil,
which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 5cm (2") apart, before planting out to
flowering position in autumn. Flowers: May-July, the following year.
