Lupin Russell Blended Mixture of all colours
Lupin Russell Mixed Seeds
These mixed seeds have an immensely variable colour range, with two shades of a single colour and contrasting bi-colours. Lupins are a true cottage garden flower. There is little to rival a mass planting of lupins with their tall spikes glowing with colour in May and June. Growing Lupins from seed is a much more cost effective way to grow these stunning flowers, when compared to buying them as established plants!

When to Sow Russel Mixed Lupins
February to June and September
Where to Sow
Soak seed overnight in warm water before sowing. Place seed on the surface of good free draining compost and cover with a sprinkling of compost or vermiculite to the seeds own depth. Place container in a propagator or a warm place at a temperature of 15-20°C (59-68°F) until after germination, which usually takes 18-21 days. In some conditions, Lupins can take up to 60 days to germinate.
What to do Next
Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into pots and grow on in cooler conditions before planting out 30cm (12") apart. Over winter September sowings in a cold frame and plant out the following spring.
May to July the following year
Lupins are tolerant of most soils and are at their best when planted in groups of 5 or 6 plants.
