  • Lets talk about them



    Lavatera Mont Blanc is such a superb crisp white flower.


    Also known as annual mallow, Lavatera is super easy to grow. I used to see 'common' mallow grow all over the British countryside, and it always grabbed my attention! These hibiscus-like flowers give off all the tropical feels, but can be grown in your back garden, yes even in the south island (No Cook Island holiday needed).


    Amazing vase life, expect up to (and over) 7 days! I even love the way Lavatera flowers unrolls as she opens.



  • How to make these beauties grow






    Sow:Autumn  or late spring, 4-6 Weeks before the last frost. Can be direct sown after last frost.


    How: 2mm deep. Autumn sown over wintered seedlings need to be protected from heavy frosts (use a greenhouse or cold frame if necessary)


    Space: 75cm 


    Height: 1m+


    Where: Full Sun


    Days to Maturity: 90-110 days


    Pick: When the first couple of flowers are unrolling. Remove flowers as they fade and news one open. 7 days+ vase life. 


    Hardy Annual

  • Notes from the garden




    Protect from hot dry winds.


    Can grow into really substantial bushes, so allow lots of space. Very low maintenance however.


    Fantastic naturally long stems, very easy to harvest as it's not a 'leafy' stem. Looks superb as a big bunch in a vase.
