Sowing: Sow from late autumn to late spring.
The seed of lavatera is quite large and can be direct sown where the plants are intended to flower. Seeds can be direct sown or sown under glass from March onwards. The optimum growing temperature is 21°C (70°F). Germination usually takes 14 to 21 days.

Sowing Indoors: Sow from late autumn to early spring
Seeds can also be sown indoors from September to March (6 to 8 weeks before the last frost date). Because Lavatera grow quickly, it is better to plant seeds into a large pot, (15 to 20cm / 6 to 8in) rather than planting into small cells, which will eliminate the need for pricking out later.
Sow three seeds to each pot, plant 2mm (1/16in) deep in good seed compost. Barely cover the seeds with compost or vermiculite. Make sure that the compost is moist but not wet and seal in a polythene bag until after germination.

 

Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged. Place in the greenhouse, preferably unheated, or cold frame. Remove the polythene bag once seedlings appear. The seeds will soon germinate and by mid May they should be ready to plant out in the garden border. Plant out up to 75cm (30in) apart.

Sowing Direct: Sow from March onwards.
Sow thinly, 6mm (¼in) deep in drills 30cm (12in) apart in well cultivated soil, raked to a fine tilth. Water regularly, especially in dry periods. When large enough to handle, thin out until they are 30cm (12in) apart in spring
 

Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Plant in the greenhouse in individual large pots, or 3 plants per growbag when 20cm (8in) high. Can be planted outdoors, 45cm (18in) apart once all frost risk has passed

 

Suitable for the Garden, vegetable garden, allotments, borders and containers.

Be prepared to water well and supplement feed with high-potash feed during season. Regular feeding is recommended.
