At Garden Express you can make a purchase with confidence. Our living merchandise is normally guaranteed to grow if our free growing guide instructions are followed.

Delivery is normally via Australia Post with larger orders delivered via StarTrack Express* courier. We service virtually all areas of Australia with only those areas not serviced by these organisations being excluded (e.g. remote islands and Territories such as Christmas Island, Lord Howe Island, Norfolk Island, Cocos Islands, Groote Eylandt). We do not deliver outside Australia but happily deliver orders placed from overseas for Australian delivery. Our regular delivery charge for basic items is $9.50 Australia-wide, regardless of the number of items ordered. Due to their higher freight costs, bulky or heavy products such as roses, large pots and a small number of hard goods have higher delivery charges. The summary of all current delivery options is:
- Orders NOT containing Roses, 120mm and larger pots/grow-bags, Bare-rooted Trees, Composting Buckets, nor any items with individually specified delivery charges, all delivered at one time, will incur the normal $9.50 freight charge. These items are referred to as “Basic Items”.
- Orders containing bush Roses, 120mm up to 155mm pot/grow-bags, Composting Buckets, together with other products delivered at the same time will incur a $13.90 freight charge.
- Orders containing Standard and/or Patio Roses, 160mm up to a 200mm pot/grow-bags, Bare-rooted Trees, together with other products delivered at the same time will incur a $20.00 freight charge.
- Orders containing Weeping Roses, Garden Beds, Larger items or pots/grow-bags greater than 200mm, together with other products delivered at the same time, will incur a $30.00 freight charge. Remote areas may incur an additional Freight charge but we will notify customers individually if this is the case.
- Orders containing products with explicitly stated delivery charges will incur charges as detailed in the individual product description.
Orders containing products from two different seasons (eg Rose or spring bulb pre-orders) that require separate deliveries will incur two delivery charges at the relevant rates (unless a free freight offer applies). A $4.00 Quarantine Inspection Surcharge applies in addition to the Delivery Charge for orders delivered to Tasmania, Northern Territory and Western Australia due to the increased complexity of quarantine requirements.
As quarantine inspections apply to each delivery, 2 quarantine charges will apply where orders contain products from different seasons. *Please note that if you order large items (eg Patio, Standard or Weeping Roses, Fruit Trees) you must specify a street address for the delivery address. StarTrack Express generally do not deliver to PO Boxes or RSD addresses so your order will be held until a suitable address is obtained. In rural areas StarTrack may deliver to physical addresses such as general stores that act as Australia Post agencies but we suggest you check with them first. Where ‘Free Delivery’ vouchers apply to an order, details of the voucher should be entered in the “Your message to us” field. Orders (except Pre-orders) are normally despatched within 7-14 working days from the time of ordering during busy periods. Delivery times may be extended during peak periods (typically following the release of the latest catalogue), extended public holidays, if extreme weather conditions are not suitable for live plant transport or as detailed in the product description. Individual items may be back ordered to avoid delaying the delivery of other items. Please allow additional delivery time for orders to Tasmania, Northern Territory and Western Australia due to quarantine restrictions.
Please note: Some orders may not be possible to parts of Australia due to quarantine and some items may carry unique delivery charges. Check full delivery policy.
Common Name: RUSSELL LUPINS
Family Name: Fabaceae
Botanical Name: Lupinus Russell Hybrids
Size: 60cm – 150cm H
Plant Type: Herbaceous perennial
Positioning: Full Sun to Part Shade
Planting Width: 50 – 100cm Depth: A hole large enough to accommodate the root mass should be dug. The crown of the plant (where the leaves and roots meet) should be planted at the soil surface. Cover the roots with soil and water the plant well. If planted too deep it can cause rotting and death to the plants. Ideally, plants can be placed into mounded beds, and this will assist with any drainage problems.
General Care: Many perennial plants are supplied as bare rooted crowns. The root section may resemble a ballerinas’ skirt, or hairy leggy bits, and the crown or growing tip often resembles a mass of dead leaves or stems. Upon receipt of your order: It is recommended that these are planted as soon after receipt as possible. If you cannot, store in a cool, well ventilated area in the original packaging. This is only suitable for a few days as the plants may die if allowed to dry out or stay too wet.
General Information: Very easy to grow and hardy plant, Lupins thrive in a cooler climate but are fairly adaptable to all areas.
Soil: Well drained humus rich.
Watering: Normal watering required throughout the dryer periods. Do not over water.
Fertilising: Lupins do not need a well fertilised soil. Care must be taken with the application of fertiliser to these plants. Too much nitrogen fertiliser will favour an abundance of foliage at the expense of the flowers. They do like an application of lime to the soil.
Pruning: Lightly cutting back after flowering can sometimes promote a second flush of flowers. Prune to ground level in winter.
Dislikes: Being moved and disturbed once established.
Pests: Pest Resistant.
✔ Ideal for feature plant, cut flowers, clumped display.
Tips: Protect crowns from frost by applying a layer of mulch. Lupins can spread rapidly in the right conditions and in some areas are considered a weed or a pest. Ensure they are not planted near a bushland in sensitive areas.
