Propagation methods of Smallflower Lupine

When we propagate Smallflower Lupine, it can be sown in spring and autumn, and sown in spring in March. However, the long-term growth of Smallflower Lupine after spring sowing is in summer. Due to the influence of high temperature and heat, some varieties do not blossom, or the proportion of flowering plants is low, the flower spike is short, and the ornamental effect is poor. Smallflower Lupine can also be propagated by cutting. Now, let's look at these two propagation methods of Smallflower Lupine.

Smallflower Lupine

Sowing propagation method of Smallflower Lupine

In the propagation of Smallflower Lupine, it can be sown in spring and autumn, and sown in spring in March. However, the long-term growth of Smallflower Lupine after spring sowing is in summer. Due to the influence of high temperature and heat, some varieties do not blossom, or the proportion of flowering plants is low, the Flower spike is short, and the ornamental effect is poor.

Under natural conditions, autumn sowing flowers earlier and grows better than spring sowing. It is sown from September to mid-October, and the flowering period is from April to June the next year. Sow and cover 72 or 128 well dishes on demand. Seedling soil should be loose and uniform, breathable and water preservation, special seedling soil or peat soil, perlite mixed use is good.

Seeds are large, common or coated, about 40 / g. The suitable temperature for germination is about 25℃, to ensure that the medium is moist, 7 ~ 10 days for seeds to emerge and germinate, and the germination rate is high.

Sowing propagation is carried out in autumn and germinates regularly at a high temperature of 21-30℃.

Cutting propagation method of Smallflower Lupine

Cuttage propagation in the spring cut rhizoma germination branches, cut into 8-10cm. It is best to take some rhizoma, cutting in the cold bed. Smallflower Lupine can be used as a biennial in areas with hot and rainy summer. It should be planted in early spring with a plant spacing of 40cm. It should be planted early and have early flowering and seed setting. Before summer, the aboveground part wilts after fruiting, and the new plant germinates in autumn, or the seeds are harvested before wilting. In north China, it needs to be protected overwintering.
