Not sure wether to leave the head to let it seed or will removing it grow more buds?

Remove it Charlie and that will encourage it to produce more flower shoots 👍

@awomanonabike Thanks! Shall I just wait until the end of its final flower to collect seeds?

🤔 Good thought! You might get some ripe ones from the bottom of the flower stem though. They also take well from cuttings apparently

@awomanonabike Oh i never knew about the cuttings! I'll have to try that! Are lupins perennial??

Yes. Though slugs and snails would sometimes make you think they’re not 😉 Take a look at #lupin to see how big they can get.
