Sow indoors for surest results, between March and June, 1.5 cm (1/2-inch) deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, unheated greenhouse, or on a warm kitchen windowsill. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 21-28 days. Transplant one at a time, when large enough to handle, to 7.5 cm (3-inch) pots. Always hold by a leaf, never by the stem. Gradually get your young plants used to outside conditions, before planting out into well-drained soil, from May to October, 60 cm (2-feet) apart. Or, sow thinly, outdoors, April-July, in a seed bed, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 5 cm (2-inches) apart, before planting out to flowering position in autumn. Enjoy the flowers from May to July, the following year.

Hints and Tips: The seeds will benefit from being soaked in tepid water overnight, before being sown.

    The seeds produce plants absolutely nothing like portrayed on the packetThe packet shows all colours including bi-colouredAll I got was purple approx 80%, lilac/purple 15% and up to now a solitary pink LupinRussell mixed? Not likely!!!48 Lupin plants, time consuming to bring on since last summer, I’ve had to give more than half away as it’s just a purple forest of Lupins.Not what the packet suggests, buy another brand.
