Growing Yellow Lupine Seeds!
# 1 | To soften the hard coating on these seeds, rub them lightly with sandpaper or soak them in 180 degrees F water overnight before sowing.
# 2 | Sow them in early spring, planting 1/2" deep. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination.
# 3 | These seedlings grow very slowly and are rather fragile. Water them occasionally and protect from freezing temperatures. Though mature plants tolerate drought conditions well, provide water occasionally in very dry weather. This plant can be poisonous to livestock if present in excessive amounts. These plants resent having their roots disturbed.
