I have not been lucky with lupins. They last a year or two and then give up on me. I love them, so at a flower show this year I made a bee-line for a lupin specialist stall and tackled them on the problem. I was told "treat them mean!" Give them poor soil, not richly improved as all my flower bed soil is. So, as I can't make my soil poor, I have accepted that I will have to buy a couple of plants every two years or so.
