Care Guide

Excellent Pest and Disease Resistance

For the most part, Lobelias do not suffer common pests or disease issues. The one notable exception is Rust. Rust presents itself as discolouring on the leaves and especially orange, fuzzy like patches. There is no specific fungicides for Rust so, if spotted, you should prune away the leaves with clean prunes (washing the prunes after as well) and burn any leaves. MORE

Water Regularly

Water to keep the soil consistently moist. During hot, dry spells, this can require you to water the plant every day, especially if the plant is in a hanging basket or pot.MORE

Partial Shade to Full Sun

Lobelia's like a space where they receive around 4-6 hours of sunlight everyday and can tolerate a position that is predominately partial shade.MORE

Fertile, Well-Draining Soil

The best soil to use is a quality potting mix or garden compost which is filled with rich organic matter and drains water away easily.MORE

Feed Often

Once a month during the growing period you can give the plants a feed of a general purpose fertiliser to give the plants a boost.MORE

Not Required

Put the tools down, no pruning required!MORE

Spacing:

12 per 12inch basket/ pot or space 6 inches apart in the a bed/ border
A good rule of thumb when planting a hanging basket is to use one plant per inch of basket diameter - so 12 plants per 12 inch (30cm) basket. Strong-growing plants such as Fuchsias and Geraniums (Pelargoniums) require more space, so reduce to 5 plants per 30cm 12 inch (30cm) basket. When planting out in the ground, you can space the plants even further, as there is not such a need for a desnse display. Increase to 6 inches for most annuals and 8 inches for the strong growing plants
