UK: New additions to West Country Lupin range at Fairweathers

West Country Lupins Lupins hadn’t changed much since the introduction of the Russell hybrids back in 1939. Then in 1996 Sarah Conibear from West Country Nursery saw a Channel 4 programme called ‘Bloom’ which featured Lupins and this inspired her to select the best forms and start to propagate them for sale.

West Country Lupins are always a show stopper at Chelsea Flower Show. Bred for uniformity and colour range, West Country Lupins make a great garden plant, as no staking is required. Produced in tissue culture, vigour is evident in production and plants show improved disease resistance. Fairweather’s Nursery is at the forefront of trialling new varieties out of the labs. We continue to assess the West Country Range and have come up with what we believe is a winning collection, showing strength of growth, colour and wow factor. This summer there will be 9 varieties to choose from, ranging from the deep bold colour of Masterpiece to the delicate pink of Blossom.
