Lavatera Barnsley Baby 3L Potted Shrub

£14.99 each

  • Good in pots and containers
  • Will flower well in full sun
  • Hardy Perennial - sow indoors or on a seedbed (April-June); transplant later to flower for many seasons
  • Attracts Bees

Plant mallow Lavatera Barnsley Baby in your flowerbed or in pots and watch the tall stems reveal beautiful flowers that last from early summer right through to autumn.

The open flowers attract pollinators into your garden like bees which hang around pollinating flowers of fruit trees like apples and plums as well as salad plants like tomatoes, making sure you get a good crop of fruit and vegetables every year.

Grow your Barnsley Baby plants in several pots for a more dramatic display and enjoy this flower that comes back year after year. We recommend you plant 1 3 litre pot of Lavatera Barnsley Baby for every 12in (30cm) container. Water each day, twice- in particularly warm weather in summer and feed your plants with a balanced fertiliser like Westland Fish, Blood and Bone throughout the flowering season.

How you receive your plant

As a potted plant perfect for planting from spring

You receive your Lavatera Barnsley Baby as a young specimen; this means you’re getting them just before they experience a real growth spurt (a bit like teenagers), growing strongly and sturdily, and primed to produce lots of lovely flowers and leaves for you.

They arrive as a main stem studded with buds with lots of growing potential in spring. Attached is a strong network of roots that will develop once planted in soil.

Can’t plant straight away?

If you can't plant up your fruit tree straight away keep your potted plant in a sunny position and keep the soil moist by watering each day. 

Look to planting into its permanent position within 5-7 days
