Whats going on with my Lupine?
Hi guys! My Lupine (have several of them) were beautiful last year and gave out an absurd amount of blooms. But this year they are about a third their original size and have only put off a few blooms. Whats going on? We had a weird winter (snow, sunshine, snow, thaw, snow) with some late frosts to boot. Are they just stunted because of it? Or are they at the end of their normally short life cycle? Hopefully its the former. They seem healthy otherwise though, not even and mildew, and its been raining here since Sunday. Thanks for any info!
-Ps. since im on the mildew topic, have you found anything that works? One of my delphiniums has come down with a bad case of it. I tried a natural remedy last year involving milk and/or baking soda, but it didnt do anything. Found anything POWERFUL that works? Have you found cutting the plant down to do any good? Thanks again.
