Product Information

Perfectly formed to bring vibrancy to beds, borders, and containers, these delightful plants will grace your garden with a plethora of colourful blooms.

Easy to grow with no special cultivation techniques required, even the most inexperienced of gardeners will have masses of gorgeous translucent blooms in their garden.

An upright, hardy annual plant, these mallows are perfect for cutting, and you'll get an abundance of delightful mallow flowers, each 7.5 - 10cm (3-4in) in diameter, along the length of the sturdy stems.

 Each bloom is magically translucent and will appear to shimmer when illuminated by the sun in a wonderful display and the abundant flowers will continue for many months over the summer - often over 4 months right through to the autumn.

Grow in moderately fertile, moist but well-drained soil, ideally in full sun though partial shade is tolerated. Provide support in exposed positions.

Supplied as 12 x plug plants, ready to grow on before planting out. Flowers June to September. H90cm (36in) W45cm (18in).

Care Information

  • For most plug plant collections, the “mini Greenhouse” they are packed in will have a label on the outside, listing the individual varieties inside. We recommend writing your own labels out on receipt!
  • Give your plugs a little attention on arrival - unpack them immediately, and either mist them or stand them in water for an hour - they may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but they’ll quickly recover. If you can’t do this, they can sit in Mini Greenhouses for a week if upright and not too wet.
    We recommend that you leave them to settle for a day somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • When you're ready to pot on, use a good quality, multi-purpose compost, and fill 3-4in pots (7-10cm).
  • Make a hole in the compost with a dibber or your finger, then holding each plug by its root ball, place it into the hole and gently firm the compost around it.
  • For great results, we recommend using our Skelly Trays or 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry as they don’t like to be left in standing water.
  • Grow on either on a bright windowsill or a greenhouse for 3-4 weeks before potting up into containers or into flower beds.
  • If planting directly into flower beds when all risk of frost has passed, prepare the ground well, removing weeds and digging in some compost or well-rotted manure if your soil is not already rich.
  • Plant approx. 20cm (8in) apart to allow them room to grow. Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.
  • Dead-head when flowers fade to encourage more blooms.
