Tumbelina Francesca 7cm Pot Bedding plant
This product is unavailable
With big ruffled double flowers, the tumbelina creates cascades of colour that bring a traditional look into your space. A scented variety of petunia, the tumbelina is a great all-rounder. The pillowy double flowers of this tumbelina boast a colour scheme that sees veins of dark pink running through lighter pinks and white that sits amid a backdrop of delicate herby green foliage. This plant would look great at the front of your garden bed or border or as an impressive feature in a container or hanging basket. Place your tumbelina in well-draining soil in a sunny location. If placed in too much shade they tend to become spindly and may not flower. Plant after the last spring frost and make sure the location is protected from strong winds.
Tumbelina's are a heat-tolerant plant that only needs to be watered thoroughly once a week (increase this in periods of prolonged dry weather). Avoid shallow watering as it encourages shallow root growth which leads to less healthy and vibrant plants. If planting in a container, water more frequently, but don't allow to get waterlogged.
Feed a water-soluble feed once a month to allow for rapid growth and heavy blooming.
Remove spent blooms and seeds when they die to encourage new growth and prevent self-seeding. Deadhead towards the end of the growing season by removing the base of the flower. It is important to remove seeds as your plant will stop producing flowers once they are produced.
Yes, the common name for nepeta is 'catmint'. It gets this name because it gives off smells that are attractive to cats. Each cat will react differently to the plant, and it is non-toxic.
