  • They suit light sandy acid soils but will tolerate most situations.
  • Very long tap roots that dredge up minerals. (Lupins fix 25% more free nitrogen than clovers and 28% more than peas and beans).
  • The long roots also help to break up and aerate heavier soils.
  • Will increase the moisture retention properties of the soil due to the large amount of bulk produced - both leaf and root.
  • Part of the legume family.
  • Can be used for fodder.
  • Lupins produce beautiful blue/white flowers but it is best to dig it in and cut down before they flower.

How to sow green manures –

  • Prepare a reasonable seed bed.
  • Broadcast you seeds.  If you have a large area to cover it is a good idea to divide the seed and the land into 4 parts to avoid running out of seed.
  • Rake in and water if soil is dry.

Did you know -

  • The flowers are great for insects so a few could be left to flower to draw more insects into the vegetable area.
