I'm confused. My two garden books say two different things about growing lupins. One says grow in acidic and the other says it dislikes acidic soil. What's the bottom line?

I'd vote for acdic, but not to excess. They grow wild everywhere in the country where I was raised in southern NB and soils there tend to be acidic in varying degrees. Most of my references also say acidic soil...

My vote is for acid soil as well. I have acidic soil and beautiful lupins.
