Think Fairygirl used her magic powers to bump up that thread 

Lupins

Gary if you have a leading shoot pinch it back a little.  Lupins are difficult to pinch back from roots normally.

I agree if filled the pots I would pot on.  And keep protected for few weeks yet.  

Aeoniums

Aeoniums tend to grow that way....leggy and dropping lower leaves, ESP over winter.

I take cuttings in early spring....taking top growth....and they root very quickly and help main plant become bushy

Most everything is pInched back for me.  Off hand I can't think of any annual or perennial thaf doesn't benefit from being pinched back.  As loNg as the plant is healthy and growing well

What plants go well with lupins?

Posted: 15/03/2014 at 23:51

Young lupins suffer badly if not fully hardened off.  Lupins that have been established are as tough as old boots but plants bought this year or have been brought on in the GH need to avoid sharp frosts .  So, best to keep imdoors at nights for few weeks yet

Where is Woody and Clueless?  Miss their posts.  Hope both are well 

Favourite vegetable to grow?

If only one choice it would have to be carrots.  Eat them like sweets for the entire summer

Hello Mark.....it's not picea albertiana conica, is it?  I wonder if it's a form of spider mite, picea mite.  Bit early but if it was indoors before you bought it.   Spraying with water is the solution to this. It's a regular problem in the summer for me but dampening works very well

Knew you would say that Dove ...ha ha.

I actually do differently for a friend of mine....doesnt look as good though 

Yes, for me it's about the foliage on a dense shrub.  Better flowers elsewhere methinks.

But, we all do things differently and that's great
