Gorgeous plants, discodave. It hadn't occurred to me to put them in pots, but I think I'll have a go this year. For the borders, it is the smaller ones for me. I'll be looking for suitable seed, reading plant catalogues being infinitely preferable to housework.

Thanks for the comments, I know its only 1 plant but it had alot of impact. Its partly because of the success of the lupin that I have 15 more patio planters this year than last year (5 of them over 120Litres)

Thanks, nutcutlet. I've tried lupins before but OH weeded the garden one autumn and got out a lot of large 'weeds'!!!! This included the lupins, a 'bramble' (climbing rose) and some climbing weeds of the group 2 variety!!! Haven't let him near the weeding since!
