I purchased two lupines at a nursery two weeks ago..planted them in well-draining, slightly acidic soil...they've started to flower but the new leaf shoots are curling and wilting...any ideas?

Hi from PEI, where lupines thrive! Is it too much or too little water? Lupines do not transplant real well. Try cutting off the blooms, and don't fertilize. Water minimally. They like sandy-ish, less than perfect soil.

send my your email and I will show you the beetles living on mine, I think they may be good.
