Lupine seed pods

Asked July 13, 2017, 11:02 AM EDT

A friend dug up several lupine plants from her large bed at lake home. I plan to transplant, and she gave me several seed pods too. Please advise.

Hi,

You can transplant the seedlings now, but you'll need to make sure to keep it well watered during the heat (generally, it is better to do transplanting in the early Fall since heat and drought stress the new plants).

Here is some good information about dealing with the seed pods. You can either plant them directly into the soil or start them earlier indoors with lights. http://homeguides.sfgate.com/start-lupine-seeds-38503.html
