hello my lupin has now pretty much gone to seed can anyone tell me when is the best time to propagate lupin seeds and how is this achieved and when to sow them.
Not yet -if the pods are at the grey fluffy stage-wait until they go brown and give them a shake- you can hear the seed rattling in the pods.
You can sow them immediately after harvesting if you wish- they will take a year or so to flower -make sure you protect the precious seedlings from the nasty slug .
If you wish to keep the seed store in a paper bag and sow early next year
