For many years I've had beautiful lupins. Last year was fantastic!!
This year they've all gone. What has happened ?



Sorry to hear that, could it be slugs,

I have had the same problem and I am putting it down to the weather in March!

The plants probably came into growth and then they we're cut down by frosts in April or drowned in May.

My blue varieties survived but my pastel colours didn't

Slugs do just love young Lupin plants, so perhaps that is the reason?

My guess would be slugs too. You have to be vigilant when new growth starts!
