lupins-and-delphiniums

Posted: 08/06/2014 at 18:24

Thats a stunning colour chicky, the same as the one I bought for my sister last year, and a lot fuller spike than mine!

Well the plants are only a year old so I guess flowering will be much nicer next year

The lupins are just sending up some spikes, I think 1 of them is going to be red

I'll post pics of those when they appear!

It has done this for a few years now Dave and I never see any sign of mildew.

It is planted in Clay soil is well mulched and gets plenty of water.

Its always the new growth that gets affected then you dont tend to notice it during the growing season, apart from the odd few leaves that drop off.

Ive seen mildew in my garden and its certainly not mildew.

Organic slug control

Out in the evening after dark with a torch, a pair of scissors and a little plastic bag to dispose of them.

No chemicals involved whatsoever and seems to be the most effective method for me
