I would like to grow lupinus albus. First of all, where on earth can I get the seeds from (no joy yet), and thence where can I find information and advice on the actual growing of it? Thank you in advance.



No idea on where you would get the seed but grow them as you would any other lupin.

I would try companies that specialize in heirloom or ancient crops. Does the UK have a branch, or and equivalent, of Seed Saver's Exchange?

You are right, Guest, I have just done a search and I can't find anyone with the seed. It is not even listed in the Scottish Rock Garden Club list. Maybe someone on this site grows the plant.

Chiltern Seeds claim to have some -

Whew! Thank you Beattie, I was having no luck. You would swear they were a controlled substance here in the States!
