Lobelia Starship Scarlet 3ltr
This product is unavailable
The lobelia is an attractive, annual herb-like plant that is great at filling your garden with colour. This plant will spread rapidly, making it a great choice for ground cover or for creating fantastic cascading displays from a container or hanging basket throughout the summer. This lobelia produces beautiful blue flowers that form in a dense matt over light green, slightly spiky foliage. This plant will keep producing plants until the first frosts, so you are guaranteed great colour throughout the warmer months. Plant your Lobelia in well-draining soil in a space that receives around six hours of direct sunlight a day. The roots are shallow growers, so you will need to water frequently (twice a week in warmer months) to keep the top two inches of soil moist, but not dry. If you overwatered your plant it is at high risk of developing fungal diseases, so it is best to stay on the side of underwatering.
Should I fertilize my lobelia?
Feed a balanced liquid feed every two weeks when first planted. Then high potash feed every two weeks through the summer.
How to prune a lobelia?
Deadhead your lobelia frequently to keep the flowers blooming uninterruptedly. Pinched back the tips to promote bushier growth.
When flowers are spent prune the entire plant back by half an inch to promote further growth.
