I have one that is planted in the side of a stream.  During the winter the roots are under water for weeks at a time and it has come to no harm.  You only need to split it if it becomes to big for your site.  As it grows it will develop quite distinct growing points and you should split these apart making sure that each piece has some roots.

Sounds like you have Lupin Aphid, horrible things.  Most insecticides will work but I find it very satisfying to rub them off each stem using my fingers, squashing them as I go

May In Your Garden

Hi Woo2, I have a half acre garden in Hampshire which, despite being here for 20 years, I still consider is in the before phase.  I intend every year to draw up the masterplan but get too excited and involved with the plants, sowing etc.  Luckily my OH has no interest in it so if I want/need another bed I just chop out another bit of the lawn.  I was going to add a picture but there don't seem to be any on this PC.

I have found that they will bend if cold.  Left alone they stand up again as the day warms up.

What's the weather like in your area?
