Who ate the lupins???

Posted: 13/03/2014 at 06:33

Mice - slugs wouldn't take the unwanted leaves and put them in a pile.  They are a menace in my GH too.

My deer leave lupins alone - they are one of the plants i can happily grow in my unfenced bit.

Mike - brilliant suggestion - it should be Monty and Dove ...... It has the makings of a classic partnership .... A horticultural Morecambe and Wise

Morning all - have a great day out Dove.  GC's/nurseries are so easy to stumble upon by accident ......  Remember, if you purchase, photos must be shared!
