Fairly new to gardening but really love getting outside and creating my very own tropical oasis on the Isle of Wight.

Hi @Annie22 they should do, dig a hole twice size of the roots of buying from a nursery or if from seed, get well established first then again plant in a good size hole with lots of fresh compost. My soil is heavy clay too and rehydrate thriving!!! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

@kevlar nice idea to combine the crystals in the garden, I love them and have them all around the house, and I have a lot of jewellery x

Brilliant, never attempted Lupin seeds, hoping I can keep the million & one slugs that seem to live in my garden away from them

@krishnahairdo they're called #TuttiFrutti from Thompson and Morgan 👏🏻 can't wait, as others I've got are just plain white...these should be an array of colours!!!

I love all olde English cottage garden flowers but seem to have lost my lupine so recently bought another - do they spread?🤔

8w
comment
Kevlar

@thomasrat3 I'm not sure to be honest, I've got a few in my front garden but it's all slated so not much chance of spreading....sorry, I can't help you on that one. Beautiful plants though x

You can collect the seed easily and plant on next year to get 100s more. Though believe it is best for the plant to deadhead before they fully seed because the sheer volume of seed production takes too much out of it over a couple of years.
