Pot up plug plants and grow them on in frost free conditions. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise mallow to outdoor conditions for a period of 7 to 10 days. Transplant lavatera plants into borders and containers outdoors in moist, well drained soil in full sun. When growing lavatera in containers use a soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Once established, lavatera plants require only occasional attention. Pruning lavatera is best undertaken in spring when all risk of frost has passed and the buds begin to swell. Prune all stems hard to about 30cm above ground level. Mallow can be slow to break bud in spring so be patient with plants that might appear to have died over winter as they may still be dormant.

I purchased a Lavatera Barnsley and it is now in a pot. It grew well but is now showing signs of yellowing the leaves and slow growth.

When can I expect flowers from the Barnsley baby plants purchased earlier this year?
Thank you for your review. The flowering period for the 'Barnsley Baby' is from June to September. This year has been particularly poor weather-wise meaning that a lot of plants have not flowered as normal. I would expect that you will see yours flower next year. If there is anything further we can help with, you are welcome to email our Customer Care Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
