Oh yes oh yes oh yes! 😁❤️❤️❤️ @jeatacake When do you plant them?

comment
jeatacake

Pretty much any time, but they need stratification as the self sown ones only appear the following spring. They should be ready in a few weeks when fully mature 👍

They're beautiful! I didn't get any seeds to germinate this year for my lupin, did you? @terrimclaughlin

That funny cause I just posted mine in a pot that you sent me the seeds. I almost gave up but frank, after about 6 weeks of nothing put them very very close to grow light and they started coming up. So they take quite awhile to germinate. You might want to put that in your journal. I couldn’t believe it. I hope I can remember. I threw a whole tray back in the dirt bin😩😊💕

I think @jennlamaye sent me white lupin and mine germinated rather quickly. I soaked them for 24 hours and then placed them in trays under light and on a germination heating pad.

@Katalin last year they were a piece of cake to germinate... I soaked them and then put them in Ziploc with a damp towel over them... I think. This year I soaked and planted them in the dreaded peat pots. 😒 I'm glad everyone else is having success!

Perennial. The pea-like flowers of lupins grow in dense spires from their destinctive foliage. They will bloom 2 months from a spring sowing or early summer from fall sown plants. Sow indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost, around mid to late February on the coast.

Sow indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost, around mid to late February on the coast. If starting indoors, use peat or coir pots to limit root disturbance. Lupins work equally well direct sown in early spring (mid-March on the coast) when some risk of frost is still possible. Can be direct sown in autumn where winters are mild. #directsow March 15th

If starting indoors, stratify seeds by chipping or soaking in water for 24 hours prior to sowing. Sow shallowly a couple of millimeters (1/8″) deep, and maintain a coolish soil temperature of 12-18°C (55-65°F). Seeds should germinate in 14-60 days. Be patient. #sowindoors March 15th in peat pots after #scarify and #soak
