Description
The glistening white blooms of Lavatera trimestris 'Mont Blanc' open from delicately pink flushed buds throughout the summer. This popular annual Lavatera is excellent as a last minute gap filler for borders, blending beautifully into almost any planting scheme. With a low, bushy habit and dark green foliage, this elegant variety can be planted as a low screen or hedge, and also makes a fabulous cut flower. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 45cm (18").


1 packet (80 lavatera seeds) (26100)

Sowing

Fill a seed tray with good, free-draining, damp, seed compost. Sow seed on the surface of the compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of dry vermiculite or finely sieved compost. Place the seed and tray in a propagator or seal inside a polythene bag and keep at around 18-23C (65-75F) until the seeds germinate. This will take about 14-21 days. Don’t exclude light as this helps germination.

When the seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them individually into 7.5cm (3") pots or multi-cell trays and grow them on in cooler conditions. Before planting out, acclimatise the plants to outdoor conditions by putting them outside for a few hours a day for a few weeks. Plant out after all risk of frost has passed at a distance of 45cm (18") apart. Plant in any light, sandy soil in full sun.

More Info
Water regularly until plants are fully established. Deadhead faded Lavatera blooms to prolong the flowering period.
