Gardeners' Notes:

I live in Birch Bay Wa. about 1 mile from Bellingham Bay.
I love my Lupin (Chandelier-yellow). I planted mine 2 years ago in the Northern section of my house. It is in a shaded flowerbed until about 1 pm, then sun till about 5. It loves this spot and has done well there. It doubled in size the first year. I will be breaking it up and givng some away as to not allow it to overgrow the space. It was p[lanted in a mushroom compost/dirt mix. The depth of the dirt is only about 1 ft. with gravel underneath and it is doing exceptional.
