The Q&A Archives: Planting Gladiolus Near Lupines and Peas

Question: I have grown some Lupines from seed. I would like to plant them out, however, one of my books mentions something about treating them as you do peas. I have heard that Glads can shrivel peas up to 70 feet away... will Glads planted nearby harm my Lupines? Please advise! Thanks very much. Kim Eskew Birmingham, AL

Answer: I have never heard of gladiolus affecting the growth of peas, or any other plant for that matter. Have you see this happen? I would plant your lupines as soon as you can in well drained soil in full sun. Keep them watered and they should bloom for your next year.
