    Should I pinch out the tips of annual lupins? Have planted them out, they are about 30cm tall, and already have mini lupins forming at the tips. Thank you!

    My lupins seed pods are ripe and they are throwing out the seeds as they dry in the hot Normandy sun. I have gathered as many as possible. Can I plant them straight away (copying the natural state where they would germinate wherever they land), or should I keep them dry till next spring and plant as per your guidelines?

      are they ‘sunrise’ seeds? I have always sown mine in spring…try a few now…or in a few weeks…then some in spring? #experiment :)
