Product Information

The perfect softest powder pink patio shrub, Lavatera 'Barnsley baby' has taken the huge flower power of it's vigorous cousins, and focussed it all on a much smaller and naturally compact form.

It is very very easy to grow, very tough and robust in rain and shine, and in summer produces lovely candyfloss pink flower displays that shorter the plant, as the strings of buds open from bottom to top of each and every stem.

Perfect in 20-30cm patio pots, simply keep watered and fed monthly, and cut back once a year before new growth starts - a very low maintenance but high reward plant indeed.

Care Information

Planting Advice for Lavetera 'Barnsley baby'

  • Grow in full sun in moist, well-drained soil. Alternatively, can be grown successfully in a pot.
  • Before planting, prepare the soil by digging over and removing any weeds.
  • Individually knock out each plant from its container. Look at the roots if they are circling around the compost, it is best to tease them out. To do this, push your fingers into the rootball along the bottom edge and pull. Do this in a couple of places. This should encourage the roots to spread into the surrounding soil.
  • Next use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the rootball.
  • The aim is to bury just the roots, leaving the bases of the stems (when in growth in summer) or the shoots (in spring) above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas.
  • Water in well to settle the soil and prevent desiccation.

Aftercare Advice for your Tree Mallow 'Barnsley Baby'

  • Please note that plants will die back over the winter months, emerging from the soil again in the spring.
  • Your mallow will need regular water when first planted until established. After that, they fairly maintenace free.
  • Feed plants regularly during the growing season with a general purpose feed such as our Blooming Fast soluable fertiliser.


Pruning Advice for Barnsley Baby

  • Pruning lavatera is best undertaken in spring when all risk of frost has passed and new buds are swelling.
