When to deadhead lupins – best time to do it to 'prolong the display' in your garden


Border lupins

The striking flowers, foliage and impressive height of lupins make them ideal for planting in borders.

To keep your displays looking their best, combine deadheading with some basic trimming.

Once the flowers begin to fade, cut back the spent flower spikes to the base to secure a fresh flush of blooms.

Later in the year, you can also trim the leaves from border lupins when they die down.

This is usually after the first frosts in autumn or winter.
