MALVA MOSCHATA MIXED COLOURS
A generous packet of a mixture of both white and pink forms of these two easy-to-grow, long-lived cottage garden plants. Musky-perfumed, bowl-shaped flowers profusely stud the stems which are clad in soft green fingered leaves. "One of our most beautiful natives." (Graham Stuart Thomas) This gem will gently self-seed only if it is happy.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
