Is it sunny? Can you dig over the ground? Have you incorporated compost ? A sunny dry site could be good

What's the weather like in your area?

John I agree with Geoff but I also pot on. I repot at least twice, planting slightly deeper each time and pinching out regularly. I then have large bushy sturdy plants to put into the garden in late May
It's prob a lot milder down here but, yes, they should be fine in unheated greenhouse. If cold at night have some fleece to hand

It's been very warm today in back garden....touched 15 degrees...but no wind and blue skies. Got some pruning done and a couple of pots of blue anemones that I potted up last autumn we're planted today in full flower

No, Hollie hock. Domt use spade to split lupins....they will pull apart. Plant or pot up roots in spring, or better still. in summer after flowering. Lupins don't last too lomg and I think after 2 years they decline
I have few pots growing under fleece that have been growing fast this spring..potted on until now in 2 litre pots
Share your love of lupins a dozen growing

Purples in my garden but what colour for you?

It's a constant learning curve. It's trial and error, planning, knowing about plants...what they do, how they grow.......and,trying to associate them so they look even better as a group than as individuals

Gardening grandma
Nothing wrong with pots from poundland
Always fun planting in pots or in the ground
Got plants galore in greenhouse, conservatory, plastic cover and under fleece. Can't wait for warmer weather to start acclimatising them all
