A cottage garden classic - perfect for adding height to borders. Lupin 'Tutti Frutti™' is a variety specially selected for its multiple stems with large, strong flower spikes packed with a mouth-watering colour range of bicoloured blooms. Height: 100cm (40"). Spread: 50cm (20").
Start off in a seed tray indoors and plant out in borders. Preparation: Fill a seed tray with good, free-draining, damp, seed compost. Sow seed on the surface of the compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of dry vermiculite or finely sieved compost. Place the seed and tray in a propagator or seal inside a polythene bag and keep at around 15-20C (59-68F) until the seeds germinate. This will take about 18-21 days. Don't exclude light as this helps germination.
When the seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them individually into 7.5cm (3") pots or multi-cell trays. Before planting out, acclimatise the plants to cooler conditions by putting them outside for a few hours a day for a few weeks. Plant out when all risk of frost has gone about 30-45cm (12-18") apart.
Feed and water regularly until plants are fully established. Deadhead faded lupin flowers to encourage a second flush of blooms to be produced. Caution: Lupin seeds are harmful if eaten.
