I like white flowers as well Bunny, so maybe a small purchase might be in order
Thanks all. I will try to find a plant then as you all seem to think this is the best plan. I was amazed at the amount of responses. Happy Gardening!
Here are a couple of photos of the white one I grew last year in a pot, stunning against the green foliage..
and in flower one month later in June;
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.
Hi Gardening grandma
Have you tried chiltern seeds.
The white lupin looks lovely Dave
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!
Oh Grandma, I bet he was popular. I hope he made it up to you...
