Watering & Feeding

For effective watering and feeding of Lupin 'West Country Polar Princess', maintain a regular watering routine, ensuring the soil remains consistently moist. However, avoid waterlogging, which can lead to root rot. Apply a balanced, slow-release fertiliser in Spring to provide essential nutrients without overstimulating growth.

This thoughtful approach to watering and feeding contributes to the overall health and longevity of 'West Country Polar Princess', ensuring a striking and enduring presence in your garden.
