the lupins that I shared a photo with a couple of weeks ago have grown quite a bit more.... some have gone quite tall and are actualy top heavy and drooping to one side..they are kept moist and are lovely and green but fear they are just going to get taller and not stand up..I understand they are still immature and wont go in the ground until probs next year after the kind advice you all gave me last there anything I can do? thankyou.



I missed what you were told last week, but if they were mine I would plant them out this year. They may be going leggy through to much kindness! Why not plant some of them out and keep the others back, then you should win with half of them at least.

I agree with Steragram--plant the lupins out in the garden as soon as possible so that they become established before the winter, Kate. They should survive the winter, and will start to shoot out again in the spring. Watch out for slugs when you put them in the garden though, as they love the new shoots! Annie(Cumbria)
