G'day all, and welcome to the new comers.

Cold, wet and windy here. Lost a 5 foot tall A. archangelica in full bloom, in the wind yesterday.

Final lot of pre holiday jabs today, so departure must be soon.

Hope the news improves Dove.

Why has my lupin changed colour?

Posted: 31/05/2016 at 23:01

According to West Country Nurseries who are major lupin breeders, reversion does not occur in lupins.

It is a question they get asked a lot, and in their experience, it is due to self seeding, close to the original plant.

I was a doctor, and I was a punk, simples.

What is this?

Sorry, not Cosmos, or Zinnia, but weeds.

going to have lots of flowers on the tree lupin this year.

First Sweet Pea. Sown October, planted out February. As David K says, they are hardy.

Climbing plants to cover a dead Acer

It might be useful to try and get some idea of why the Acer died, before planting other stuff around it.

If it were me, I would remove it.

IMO, Lupins are not ideal pot plant, it would be much happier in the ground.

I don't think your proposed location will be a problem.

Yes Hazel, they are still going out. They have been hardened off, and I think the temperature is not going to get too low.

I think a lot depends on how sturdy the plants are.

G'day all.

Very windy and cold here, thunder storms to follow.

Need to get a move on planting out Cannas, Dahlias, and Gingers. Ricin far to small to go out, so may not get them in, before I go away. It would be a shame not to have any this year.

Sorry to hear your news Chicky, you have had a hard time recently. Is OH ok. now?
