I love lupins. I find them extremely hardy where I live and need no special treatment at all. I was lucky I had a couple of them already established when I moved here. Still debating whether to divide the lovely purple one, don't want to kill it, but might just have to be brave when the weather warms up.
I bought a bare root one which did very little in the first year I planted it, but the 2nd (last year) it came up treat.
The seeds that I sowed last year are growing in well in my cold frames, not sure if they will flower this year, but maybe. I must have been lucky no need for spraying and they grow really well in my heavy soil
