Lobelias giving a longer flower performance; this seed raised lobelia is a perfect contender for adding to hanging baskets and containers, spreading through and quickly giving cover and visual impact to your pot and basket displays. Place 3 plants at equal distances around the edge of a pot with 12in (30cm) diameter to froth over the sides in an exuberant display.
Alternatively add these flowers to the front of flowerbeds, spacing your plants around 12in (30cm) apart in all directions. An area of a yard by a foot (1m by 30cm) will fit around 6-9 plants.
How your plants arrive
You receive 3 young plants in one pack. Each of your flowers arrives to you as young plants containing a ‘plug’ of soil with roots running through them and some small green stems and leaves.
Although they are little they are the perfect size to get growing fast once you plant them up.
Your flower plants will arrive to you in a sealed plastic container contained in a bubble-lined envelope or a box for larger orders. The wallet allows your young plants to stay healthy by giving them an ideal air and root environment when it arrives to you. Check your 3 plants are there in the plastic container, according to your order.
Can’t plant straight away?
If you cannot plant up your lobelia flower plants straight away into their permanent position make sure the plugs of your plants are kept moist at all times.
You can place your plants on a saucer or tray of water so the plugs are immersed at the beginning of the day. Keep an eye on them and take them out of the water once the soil is moist from absorbing the water beneath.
Keep your plants in a well-ventilated and light position in their plastic wallet after giving them water. Look to planting in their permanent position within 5-7 days.
