Plant Information

Top Tips

  • The Secret to Success with lupins is to leave them alone. They don’t like being vigorously pruned or cut back, so only remove flower spikes once they have faded to encourage further blooming and don’t allow any seed pods to develop.
  • Easy to look after, just keep an eye out for slugs, and leave foliage to die back naturally in the autumn.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for Lupin 'Manhattan Lights'

  • Lupins prefer to be grown in full sun with some afternoon shade to protect them from the heat of hot, midday sun. Grow in any soil as long as it is free draining and rich in organic matter.
  • Pot-grown lupins can be planted at any time of the year as long as the soil is not waterlogged or frozen.
  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill one the plant is in place.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove your lupin from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and then water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.


Aftercare Advice for your ‘Manhattan Lights’

  • Water 'Manhattan Lights' well and regularly for the first few months.
  • Once planted, keep the area free of competing weeds.
  • Apply a generous layer of mulch around the base of the plant after planting and thereafter annually to keep the roots cool.
  • Lupins are nitrogen fixers, storing Nitrogen in specially adapted root nodules so don't need specialist feeding.

Pruning Advice for Lupins

  • Lupins don’t like being vigorously pruned or cut back, so only remove flower spikes once they have faded to encourage further blooming and don’t allow any seed pods to develop.
  • Leave foliage to die back naturally in the autumn.
