HOW TO GROW

Sowing: To soften the hard coating on these seeds, rub them lightly with sandpaper or soak them in 180 degrees F water overnight before sowing. Sow them in early spring, planting 1/2" deep. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination.

Growing: 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.

Harvesting: For cut flowers, choose stems with flowers that have just opened. Strip the foliage that will fall below the water level, and place in water immediately.

Seed Saving: As the seed pods develop, watch them carefully. As soon as they ripen fully they will split and drop their seed. When the pods begin to turn brown, remove them and spread them out to dry. Remove the seed from the pods and store it in a cool, dry place. Keep in mind that these seeds are highly poisonous.

Great Product & Website, but Ebay Store has Problems

Great products and I appreciate the mylar and resealable packaging. Ordered a few times from your website in last few years and had good experiences. However, last winter I discovered your eBay store, enjoying some browing and light shopping right from my smartphone. My impulse buying via smartphone from Everwilde reached $500+ last winter. At spring, I noticed that there was an issue with combining shipping. I sent a message to the seller contact and was explained several steps, and then learned these steps were only possible from desktop, not smartphone. Folks, even your smallest competitors have built methods to auto combine shipping. You look lazy and not customer focused. And, I'm not going to throw away as much money on shipping because you wont fix the issue. I won't spend one more dime on your products at Ebay because you don't seem to care about customer service through your store there. Website orders only, 1-2 times each year!

Sorry that you are having trouble with the Ebay site. We are aware that combining items into one invoice is not very convenient there, and have spent hours on the phone with Ebay engineers trying to make it better for our customers. Maybe it would just be easier to place your orders on our website? The site is easy to navigate, the pricing is the same as Ebay, and we offer free shipping on larger orders, so seems like a great solution?

DESCRIPTION

IN-STOCK ORDERS SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY VIA THE US POST OFFICE.

Once established, this lovely perennial will not disappoint with vibrant violet-blue hue. The elegant spikes are much larger than the native Wild Lupine and are easier to grow. This plant grows so vigorously that it can almost be invasive in the right conditions.
The name Lupine comes from the Latin "lupus," meaning wolf. This refers to the folk belief that this plant took nutrients from the soil. Ironically, this plant actually improves the soil because of its nitrogen fixing abilities.

HOW TO GROW

Sowing: To soften the hard coating on these seeds, rub them lightly with sandpaper or soak them in 180 degrees F water overnight before sowing. Sow them in early spring, planting 1/2" deep. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination.

Growing: These seedlings grow very slowly and are rather fragile. Water them occasionally and protect from freezing temperatures.
