Tree Mallow Trimestris Mix Seeds
Info: The tree mallow is also called bush mallow because of its bushy growth. The delicate mallow flowers appear from July to October in a beautiful pink with fine veins and a bright white. As it comes from the Mediterranean, it is not frost hardy. They are well suited for perennial beds or in front gardens and look particularly pretty in front of a wooden fence.
Sowing & cultivation: Sowing either indoors from February or outdoors from the end of April. In order to prevent the disease of burning spots, seeds should be placed in cloth bags in warm water at 45 to 50°C for 30 minutes before sowing. Then you can sow.
Tree mallows prefer a bright sunny to half shady location and get along well with quite dry soils. Protect from waterlogging.
