How to Grow Lavatera from Seed

A cottage garden favourite, with some fabulous modern varieties, Lavatera is a fabulously bushy border plant, blessed with a long flowering period and boasting large blooms, wonderful both for cutting and for dried flower arrangements.

Lavatera seeds are quite large and can be direct sown where the plants are to flower. Seeds can be direct sown or sown under glass from March onwards. Germination typically requires 14 to 21 days at 70F

Lavatera seeds can also be sown indoors from September to March. Lavatera grows quickly and can be planted directly into a large pot, 15 to 20cm or 6 to 8 inches is ideal, instead of starting off the seed in trays or cells, this will eliminate the need for pricking out later.

Plant three seeds per pot, 2mm deep covered lightly with compost or vermiculite, ensuring that the compost is moist but not wet and seal the pot in a polythene bag until after germination. Remove the polythene bag as soon as the seedlings appear. By mid May the seedlings should be ready to plant out into a sunny position.
