Always wanted both Verdun. Did have delphiniums one year and no show the next, wasn't vigilant enough when they came through, think they were eaten. Only seen lupins close up once and had what seemed to be huge greenfly on, but as you say easy to get off. I think I'm still remembering what I was told as a child, such as wallflowers encourage club root into your garden, broad beans encourage black fly and other such stories from the 60's. ..Is there a thread there ???
This is the first year I've really grown / planted annuals and smaller plants, have been a veg' and perennial grower. Now really enjoying the growing of new things. Have had to put a book at side of computer to note down what I want, what to do when, and what I want building, names of things that the forum members have identified hoping I will learn them
Soz Janet rambled on when your post was about lupins.
