    Hello chums :)

    I've just harvested the seed from my Tree Lupin and would like to offer them up to members. I reckon there are probably over 200 seeds, so should be plenty to go round if I (say) include 10 seed per member. Just PM me with your address (no need to add your real name), and I'll send them off in a couple of weeks.

    Cheers...Freddy

      I guess you could cut them, yes. They're not the same as regular Lupins, as they're short jointed.

      Not a very good pic, but hopefully indicative.

        I feel I should point out, these do not offer prolonged flowering, unlike regular Lupins. They do though put on a good show around June, and are scented.
