Probably not, seed need to be ripe when it is sown otherwise it just rots in the ground. Lupin seed pods should be black when you harvest them and just starting to split open.

I was about to say exactly the same....probably not.

I would say not. the green seeds will not have formed properly so wont have the ability to germinate.

ok thanks :D just thought id give it a whirl instead of chucking them lol

One out of a hundred or so may be ripe enough to sprout, but it's a bad bet.
