I’ve noticed some damage on the leayes of lupins. What could be the problem, i.e. what pests are common to these flowers?

It would be normal that the leaves of lupins and most other flowers are now becoming a bit tatty and will soon wither. If there are holes, it is probably snails but that damage is not significant.

The most serious pest of lupins is lupin aphid, which attacks in early summer and can cause plants to collapse.
