Hello gardeners,

my question is in the title - am I wasting my time putting a lupin tuber in ground at this stage?

Thanks,
R

Lupins grow from seed not tubers are you sure of what you have.
Lupin plants growing in pots can be planted out.
If you bought something bare rooted in a plastic bag get it into the ground ASAP and soak it for 1 hour beforehand.
Any chance of a pic.

Ah, that explains it - I have a root. I was wondering why a google search for planting lipin tubers yielded nothing.

I've got it soaking and may as well give it a go.

Thanks
