and this

and do try that cake ... it really is very tasty ... it doesn't taste like a vegetable. 

lupin invasion

Yes, they'll be perfectly happy there together, as long as the slugs let the lupins live.


A traditional English garden does not consist simply of native English plants ... British plant collectors have been bringing back plants from all over the world for centuries and they've been grown in the gardens of stately homes and workers cottages.  

lupins dominate all

They will all co-exist quite happily ... the biggest danger will be that slugs will eat the lupins.

And if you run out of ideas of what to do with your courgettes, this unusual recipe for courgette cake is absolutely delicious ... best we've ever tasted ... I made several last year ... they disappeared in a flash

I agree with Treehugger.


Also, from the look of things there's a pretty wild wilderness the other side of the fence.  I'd put down some sort of vertical root barrier along the base of the fence ... around 18" deep if possible, but at least 12" .... to help slow down the invading hordes.
