The Original Russell Lupin Strain
Some time ago I posted about buying a pkt. of Russel Lupin seed from Ashwood Nurseries in England. I ended up with just a couple of plants :(, 1 purple and yellow, 2 pink and whites due to a slug/snail hit and run one night. I now put copper mesh around anything I seed.
These might not be quite as nice as some of the improved Russell Lupins on the market now but I think they're pretty good, a lot better than the last lupins I grew from seed, I ended up tossing them.
I have the whole story on how they came about, how they were salvaged, but, you know how that goes, I have it in such a safe place I can't put my fingers on it.
All going well I'll try collecting as much seed as I can, if successful I can share with a few who might be interested in these olden goldies :).
