So, this is the second time I have tried to grow Lupines. I got this particular plant at the Portland Farmer's Market and it appeared to transplant well. It was vigorous and bloomed beautifully before it was attacked mercilessly by aphids. I managed to stave them off using forceful water from the hose and a detergent/water mixture in a squirt bottle.

Is the soil holding too much water? Should I add some sand? Does it just need compost/ fish emulsion? Would love some help with this one. Thanks!
