A bit hit and miss to be honest! I bought six altogether and only one plant produced a flower spike. The others seem to have died despite my best attempts to nurture them which is a bit disappointing.

Good, fast service and really good plants, I have never had much luck with lupins before but these have been really pleasing.
I hope they come back as good next year.

A good plant when arrived. It flowered later than ‘The Pages’ and was much more susceptible to slug damage so the flowering period was much shorter.

Lost to garden pests, so did not really see it in bloom and mature.

I should have complained on opening this . The re was no way this specimen was ever going to survive as it was shrivelled. Sadly I didn't complain as most of the plants I receive from you are very good . I tried every method of resuscitation to no avail!!

Service was good as usual but a bit disappointed with performance of plants. Maybe they’ll be better next year.
