Grubs In Lupin Seed Pods.


By Spider

Orkney, United Kingdom

I've been collecting lupin seeds from the pods and in 50% of pods are little greenish grubs - what are they ? I guess they're bad news.



bad news i am afraid, they will be eating the seeds. remove any undamaged seed and store in a paper bag in a cool place.

Thanks Seaburngirl, thought as much but have been saving the seeds. Love lupins, want to grow loads when we can.
