My plant is in its 2nd year and was told it would flower from may to first frost but its now nearly july and its only in bud with a couple of flowers my soil is mostly clay and compost can i speed it up? any advice please.
Leave it alone graham, my lavatera has been very slow this year, I think the cold spring has held them back a bit.
Thank you Dave ill do that.
Thanks verdun patience is not my strong point when we have such a short summer but im glad to hear things will be ok.
Our newly planted lavatera has started flowering in the past few days.
Thanks so did mine when i planted it out last year ill keep you all informed i have about 3 flowers so far
Hello, who has a short summer? I bought a Lavatera on e-bay last year, about 10 inches tall, for the sake of economy, today it is 5 feet tall, amazing, its the standard Barnsley colour.We didnt have a cold spring though (or winter) suppose it depends where you live. Must get the kids to show me how to put pics on here!
Hi just to let you know you were right patience was the answer
